If you are currently on disability benefits but would like to eventually
get back to work, then the Ticket to Work Program that is regulated by
the Social Security Administration may be able to help you. Most people
who receive Social Security benefits can use the Ticket to Work program
to learn about new work opportunities that are physically possible for
a person with a disability. When you start to receive
SSDI benefits, you will probably be notified that you are eligible for this program.
Beneficiaries can choose where they want to assign their Ticket to Work.
Some may choose an Employment Network whereas others may choose a support
service that can help them to obtain a vocational goal. Whatever organization
you choose, the service will work hard to find you an employment service
or vocational rehabilitation service that can eventually help you to earn
money through another job.
Employment Networks will need to accept your Ticket to Work in order to
help you. They will then coordinate and provide services so that you can
find and maintain employment. The goal of this program is to reduce people's
reliance on Social Security benefits by helping them to find a well-paying
job that they can accomplish without any unreasonable physical or mental
strain. The Ticket to Work program may not be affective for all disability
benefits recipients, but in the past it has proved to be successful for
those in need of a job.
If you are currently receiving SSDI, then you can choose whether or not
you want to participate in the Ticket to Work program. It is free and
voluntary, so if you are forced to participate you are being treated wrongly.
