What is Ticket to Work?
CHOICE is a partner with the National Disability Institute/American Dream
Employment Network and is a Ticket to Work provider.
What does this mean?
It is not always easy entering or re-entering the workforce, especially if you are also experiencing a significant disability. Fortunately, if you qualify you can receive free support and assistance from the Social Security Administration's (SSA) Ticket to Work Program.
Ticket to Work connects you with free employment services to help you decide if working is right for you, prepare for work, find a job or maintain success while you are working. Your "ticket" is considered an agreement between you and the SSA approved service provider assisting you in your career/employment goals. These services providers are called Employment Networks (EN), and each is equipped to address the unique needs of job-seekers with disabilities. So, if you are 19-64 years old and receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits because of your disability, you are eligible to participate in the Ticket to Work program absolutely free. As a partner with The American Dream Employment Network (ADEN), we strongly encourage you to meet with us and learn more about what CHOICE can offer you.
