We are a Qualified SSA Ticket to Work Program Employment Network

Working with our team of Ticket to Work Program counselors is easy.

Getting Started

The Social Security Administration (SSA) set up the Ticket to Work program so that these beneficiaries could find back-to-work support services in their own communities. Only qualified Employment Network Agencies can provide the best and FREE assistance to getting you started with your application to the program. Here are the basics you need to know.
SSDI Employment Network Get Started Icon
  • Ticket to Work is designed to help people explore or try returning to work without fear of losing their benefits or Medicare for an extended period of time.
  • Ticket to Work enrollment will prevent a Continuing Disability Review (CDR).
  • Once an SSDI or SSI claimant decides to sign up for Ticket to Work the process is simple. First, they have to determine if they are eligible (almost all are), and second to find an EN (Employment Network) to work with them.
  • Vocational Services provided by an approved EN are done so at NO CHARGE to the disabled individual.
  • Signing up starts with filling out an application provided by an EN counselor.
