Helping people get jobs without losing benefits
The Ticket to Work program helps people get jobs without losing benefits.
If a person is between the ages of 18 and full retirement age and has a disability, and is receiving Social Security disability benefits, the Ticket to Work Program can help him or her get a job without losing benefits.
Ticket to Work is a voluntary program of the U.S. Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999. To learn about eligibility requirements for the Ticket to Work program, call toll free 1-866-968-7842 (Voice) or 1-866-2967 (TTY).
What does the Ticket to Work program do?
The Ticket to Work program helps people who are receiving Social Security disability benefits find employment from a service provider, or Employment Network (EN), of their choice.
State Vocational Rehabilitation agencies (also known as State VRs) such as the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission and the Massachusetts Commission for the Blind are ENs under the Ticket program. Other service providers including public and private agencies must submit an application to the Social Security Administration to become an EN. For a list of approved ENs in Massachusetts, click here.
