Introducing the New Ticket to Work Website!

Nov 24, 2014

Just in time for its 15th anniversary, the Ticket to Work program has launched a redesigned beneficiary website at www.choosework.net. The website is part of Social Security’s efforts to help people with disabilities who want to work find and keep a job to reduce or eliminate their need for cash benefits.

The website is the place to start to learn about the Ticket to Work program, which provides free employment support services to Social Security disability beneficiaries who want to work. The site has an improved layout and is easier to use. It also offers more information to support you or someone you know on the journey to financial independence. We encourage you to visit the site to find these new features:

  • Responsive design – More people use phones and tablets to access the Internet. The new website is now ready to work with smartphones and tablets, making it easy to access resources on the go.
  • Improved Find Help tool – The updated Find Help tool makes it easier to find Ticket to Work service providers. Type your zip code or state to find service providers that can help you. Filter the search results by provider type or disabilities served. Do you know the name of the provider you’re looking for? You can now type in their name or part of their name and find the service provider you are searching for. 
  • New Help Me Choose tool – Are you unsure if the Ticket to Work program is right for you? Do you wonder what type of service provider would be most helpful to you? This tool asks a series of questions to help you decide if you are ready for the program, and what type of service provider would be a good fit for you. After answering each question, the tool will provide you with a list of providers tailored to your needs. 
  • Self-paced Ticket Tutorials – You can learn more about the Ticket to Work program through these self-paced Ticket to Work Tutorials. Any time of day, follow step by step through four learning modules to learn what you can do to achieve your work goals.

Go to the Find a Job section to learn how Ticket to Work service providers can help you explore opportunities available to people with disabilities in the federal government or with federal government contractors through Section 503 hiring.
  • The Path to Work – Use the Path to Work to learn more at every part of your journey. Find information on how the Ticket to Work program can help, whether you are thinking about working, looking for a service provider, trying to find a job, or maintaining your success after you start working.
  • Enhanced Success Stories – Experience our Success Stories in new ways with text, audio, and video all on one page. The new layout makes it easy to read and view.
