The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program is an employment program for people receiving SSI and SSDI with disabilities who are interested in going to work. The goal of the Ticket Program is to increase opportunities and choices for Social Security disability beneficiaries to obtain employment, vocational rehabilitation (VR), and other support services from public and private providers, employers, and other organizations.
Under the Ticket Program, the Social Security Administration provides disability beneficiaries with a Ticket they may use to obtain the services and jobs they need from organizations called Employment Networks (ENs).
MAXIMUS, a private company, has been contracted by the Social Security Administration to administer the ticket program.
VocRehab Vermont is an Employment Network under the Ticket to Work program. VocRehab also partners with community partners as a joint EN. VocRehab wants to help beneficiaries go to work and will request ticket assignment.
An individual working with VocRehab Vermont may assign their ticket to VocRehab by signing SSA’s 1365 form which will detail employment plan goals and is signed by both the job seeker and VocRehab counselor.
