Ticket to Work
The Ticket to Work program was created by the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 (TWWIIA), and The Choice Group has provided services as an approved Employment Network (EN) since 2009. The goal of the program is to increase self-sufficiency for Social Security beneficiaries with disabilities. The program matches beneficiaries who want to work and transition off cash benefits with the unique supports they need from ENs to prepare for employment, find an appropriate job, and become stable and independent in it. A major component of the program is helping beneficiaries understand their SSI/SSDI benefits, the effects that earned income will have on those benefits, how to protect their health benefits, and the Work Incentives available to help them bridge the gap to self-sufficiency.
