What is Ticket to Work?

Social Security’s Ticket to Work is a voluntary program that helps people with disabilities who want to work by providing them with free support services. If you are between the ages of 18 and 64 and are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you already qualify.

While you explore your work options or go back to school, the Ticket Program and special rules, called Work Incentives, help you stay in control of your healthcare and cash benefits. For example, cash benefits don’t stop until you earn a certain amount of money (this is called Substantial Gainful Activity or SGA). The goal is that one day you can be financially independent.
