Social Security's 'Ticket to Work' Program

Social Security's 'Ticket to Work' Program

If you have been getting Social Security Disability benefits and believe that you may soon be ready to return to work, we have good news for you. Social Security provides work incentives and offers a “Ticket to Work” program, both of which can help ease your transition back to work.

The Social Security Administration has established special rules that make it possible for people receiving SSD benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to work while still receiving their monthly benefits.

If you go back to work, but realize that you are unable to continue working because of your medical condition, your benefits will start up again – you may not have to go through the application process.

Some of the work incentives, include:

  • Cash benefits for a time while you are working;
  • Continued Medicaid or Medicare coverage while you work; and
  • Assistance with education, training and rehabilitation so you can start a new career.

It’s important to note that Social Security and SSI have different rules. If you are receiving SSD or SSI benefits, be sure to inform the Social Security Administration right away when you begin or stop working, and let them know about any other changes that could affect your benefits.

When you think you might be ready to go back to work, Social Security’s Ticket to Work program may help you. Under this program, you can receive free vocational rehabilitation, training, job referrals, and other support services, all aimed at making this transition as smooth as possible.
