Ticket to Work Program

The Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 is designed to help people with disabilities seeking employment, primarily by eliminating the disincentives to work for individuals who receive SSI or SSDI, and expanding the availability of health care services to people with disabilities who are working. The free, voluntary program gives users a “ticket” that allows them to get employment services, vocational rehab services or access to other supports, such as assistive technology. The program will be phased in nationally over a three-year period, beginning in 2002.
