Work Incentives and the Ticket to Work Program

Most Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability beneficiaries will receive a "ticket" they may use to obtain vocational rehabilitation, employment or other support services from an approved provider of their choice to help them go to work and achieve their employment goals. The Ticket to Work Program is voluntary. Go to the Social Security Administration’s work incentives site or the Ticket to Work site for more information on these programs.
