Welcome to the Ticket to Work Program!

Social Security's Ticket to Work (Ticket) Program supports career development for people ages 18 through 64 who receive Social Security disability benefits and want to work. The Ticket Program is free and voluntary. It helps people with disabilities move toward financial independence and connects them with the services and support they need to succeed in the workforce.

The Ticket Program is a good fit for people who currently receive Social Security disability benefits, but who want to improve their earning potential and are committed to preparing for long-term success in the workplace. It offers qualified people with disabilities access to meaningful employment with the assistance of authorized employment service providers.
