"This is about more than jobs or paychecks... It's fundamentally about the dignity of each human being; about recognizing that work is at the heart of the American dream."
Ticket to Work:
Social Security's Ticket to Work program supports career development for people with disabilities who want to work. Social Security disability beneficiaries age 18 through 64 qualify. The Ticket program is free and voluntary. The Ticket program helps people with disabilities progress toward financial independence.
Choosing to work can change your life. The Ticket to Work program and Work Incentives allow you to keep your benefits while you explore employment, receive vocational support and gain work experience. If you are age 18 through 64 and receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you already qualify!
