Several million disabled and blind Americans receive monthly Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payments. Some receive both. Many also have help from Medicare or Medicaid in paying medical bills. The impact of these programs in meeting people’s needs is significant. However, many people with disabilities want to work.  To help them, Social Security has a variety of work incentives, including the Ticket to Work program.

The Ticket to Work program includes work incentives that allow you to keep your cash benefits and medical coverage while you transition to the workplace. If you find that you cannot work, you can easily start your Social Security and/or SSI payments back up again. Employment Networks are organizations that can help you find and keep a job—Operation: Job Ready Veterans™ is one of those Employment Networks. We can provide you with support services to help you become ready to seek, secure, and succeed in employment.   

If you are an adult, ages 18 through 64, and you receive disability benefits, then you qualify for Ticket to Work. You can use the Ticket to Work program to receive the services and support you need.

 Success Stories

Breakdown to Breakthrough—Renate Merritt: Success Stories from Ticket to Work

I had been on disability for over 15 years. I wanted to try and get back into the workforce but had no idea of how to. I searched the Ticket to Work program and was given a couple of options on who to contact. I chose Sheriene & I am so thankful I did.

She went above and beyond to help me create a resume, apply for jobs, prepare for interviews & even how to accept the best-matched position for me.

She is always there to answer any questions I have about the program or how work will effectmy benefits. Even months later she is still encouraging me when I have doubts in myself or abilities.

I would highly recommend allowing her to help you!
