Register Now! Social Security's Work Incentives Seminar Event (WISE) Webinar: July 30, 2014: More Jobs for People with Disabilities: What New Regulations Can Mean for You

Section 503

If you are a Social Security disability beneficiary and want to make more money through work, Ticket to Work can provide the support you need to transition to financial independence.

The July 30, 2014, national WISE webinar will present information about Social Security programs and rules that may apply to you, including details about Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act. Section 503 is a regulation that prohibits federal contractors and subcontractors from discriminating in employment against people with disabilities and requires these employers to take action to recruit, hire, promote, and retain these people with disabilities. The presentation will include information on:  

  • What the changes to Section 503 mean for Social Security disability beneficiaries
  • Tips for self-identification during the application and hiring process
  • How to find and prepare for Section 503 opportunities

I am currently working with my state rehabilitation services to find work.  Is this something they take care of?  My Ticket to Work is assigned to them.

Hi Juanita, yes, through the Ticket program, you can work directly with an Employment Network (EN) or Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agency that can provide you support services so that you can be successful. The goal of the program is that over time you are able to work enough to earn your way off of benefits. Your service provider will be committed to that goal. You can learn more about the program on our website at www.socialsecurity.gov/work. You can also speak with one of our representatives at the Ticket to Work Help Line to learn more! They can answer questions specific to your situation. The number to call is 1-866-968-7842 (V) or 866-833-2967 (TTY) Monday through Friday from 8:00AM - 8:00PM ET.
