What is the 'Ticket to Work' program, and how can it help you?

If you're receiving Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, then you may be interested in learning more about the "Ticket to Work" program. This program helps support you as you attempt to go back to a job you enjoy.

In some cases, people find that they can go back to work and support themselves. In other cases, it's too much and they have to go back on disability. The benefit of this program is that it allows you to gradually increase your earning potential and remain on disability at the same time. Eventually, if you can, you'll be able to stop receiving disability. If you can't, it's still there to kick back in and support you as it did in the past.

There are incentives in this program. For example, you may be able to keep Medicare and Medicaid while you work. You can also have support services that guide you as you continue to learn your abilities. While you trying to work, you'll also have the support of knowing that you can keep some or all of your benefits during a transitional period. If things don't work out, you'll be able to get your disability benefits in full once again without having to qualify a second time.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) will have to determine if you still qualify for benefits after you begin working, but during that time, you're also able to receive temporary benefits for up to six months. All in all, this is a great program to help you get back into the workforce if you are able.
