Welcome to the Ticket to Work Program

Did you receive a call from 1-855-835-0010 or 1-855-453-7196? The call you received was from Social Security.
We are so glad you want to learn about how the Ticket to Work (Ticket) Program can help you choose work and become financially independent. The Ticket Program is for people like you who are age 18 through 64 who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits because they have a disability. Social Security recognizes that, with the right services and supports, many people with disabilities, will eventually be able to and want to work. They want the financial independence, social interaction and sense of productivity that work can provide.

Did you receive a call from an Employment Network?
Social Security recently began a marketing pilot project for select Employment Networks (EN), which allows them to contact beneficiaries directly. This pilot is part of our ongoing effort to provide you with meaningful support as you join or rejoin the workforce. If you received a call but are unsure if it came from an approved EN, you can confirm the EN is a Ticket Program service provider by using our Find Help tool, or by contacting the Ticket to Work Help Line at 1-866-968-7842 or 866-833-2967 (TTY) Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. ET.

Explore your options as a Social Security beneficiary.
If you receive SSI and/or SSDI benefits and want to join or rejoin the workforce, take a moment to learn about Social Security's voluntary Ticket Program. Connect with free programs, services and supports you can use to transition back into the workforce or to work for the very first time. Get job-ready and move your life in a positive direction. Create a better, self-supporting future – right now!

We know you'll have questions and concerns.
How will work and earnings affect my Medicare/Medicaid and cash benefits? What will happen if I try to work and have to stop because of my disability? Where can I get career counseling, job placement and follow-up support?

I'd like more information, but I am not interested in signing up for email updates at this time. Please take me to the Ticket to Work Program website.
