Oct 26, 2016

By Guest Blogger Al Sloane

Benefits.gov logoAs a Ticket to Work participant, you’ve got a lot on your plate. Whether you’re looking for a job, transitioning into a new position, or trying to juggle new responsibilities, Benefits.gov can help. We house information on over 1,200 benefits, many of which are for people with disabilities and for which you may qualify. Below, we’ll explain what our site offers and how you can put it to use.

Finding Benefits

Our site’s main tool is the Benefit Finder, our free and confidential prescreening questionnaire. As you answer questions about your current situation, you’ll see a list of benefits you may be eligible to receive. The more questions you answer, the more precise your eligibility information will be. You can click on individual benefits in your list to learn more about the program, eligibility requirements, how to apply, and who to contact if you have questions.

Disability Benefits

About one in four Benefits.gov users are people with disabilities. With our 17 federal agency partners, we provide the most up-to-date information on programs from 20 different categories, including disability assistance. Some of our programs focus on disability employment.

About Ticket to Work

Social Security’s Ticket to Work program supports career development for people ages 18 through 64 who receive Social Security disability benefits (SSI or SSDI) and want to work. The Ticket program is free and voluntary. It helps people with disabilities move toward financial independence and connects them with the services and support they need to succeed in the workforce.
