What is the Ticket to Work program?

Social Security’s Ticket to Work program supports the career development of individuals with disabilities who want to work and progress toward financial independence.

The Ticket program is a good fit for people who want to improve their earning potential and who are committed to long­term success in the workforce. Ticket to Work offers beneficiaries with disabilities access to meaningful employment with the assistance of employment service providers.

Participants in the program are allowed to keep their benefits while exploring employment opportunities, receiving vocational rehabilitation and gaining work experience. Your cash benefits, Medicaid or Medicare can continue throughout your transition to work, with protections in place to help you return to benefits if you find you are unable to continue working due to your disability.
