Social Security’s Ticket to Work program is a free and voluntary program available to people ages 18-64 who are blind or have a disability and who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). OEI is an authorized Employment Network of the Ticket to Work Program. While participating in the program, beneficiaries can get the help they need to safely explore work options without immediately losing their benefits. With our help, an individual can:
- Go to work without automatically losing disability benefits
- Return to benefits if he/she has to stop working
- Continue to receive healthcare benefits
- Be protected from receiving a medical continuing disability review while using the Ticket and making the expected progress with work or educational goals.
