New Chapter Added to Ticket to Work Tutorials

Dec 1, 2015

Classifieds section of newspaper with listings circledAre you thinking about working, searching for a job or looking for ways to help you stay at work?

Today, we are pleased to announce the release of a new chapter in the Ticket to Work Tutorials, titled Chapter 6: More Job Opportunities. This chapter explains:

•    The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and recent changes to a rule called Section 503 that requires federal contractors to take positive steps to recruit, hire, train, promote and retain people with disabilities
•    Voluntary disclosure and reasonable accommodations
•    How the Ticket to Work program can connect you with employers looking to hire

The first five tutorial chapters of the tutorials have also been updated to reflect program changes and provide more insights on program benefits. These chapters can help you decide if working is right for you, find a Ticket to Work service provider (such as an Employment Network (EN) or state Vocational Rehabilitation agency), find a job and manage your money. Learn more about each of the other chapters in this blog post.

If you are a Social Security disability beneficiary and you want to work, the Ticket to Work program can support you along your journey to financial independence. To learn how the program can work for you, contact the Ticket to Work helpline at 1-866-968-7842 (V) or 1-866-833-2967 (TTY).
