Ticket to Work Program

The Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program is a free and voluntary service that is available to help people with disabilities connect with employment services that will help them gain financial independence.

You might be eligible for the Ticket to Work program if:

  • You are age 18 through 64 and receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).


  • You receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) because of a disability.

Eligible participants of the Ticket to Work program may continue to receive Medicaid and/or Medicare benefits. Once employed and as an individual’s self-reliance grows, they can begin to replace their cash benefits with the earnings from work, putting individuals on the road to financial independence. Through this program, they are able to do this with the peace of mind that benefits will be quickly accessible again if needed due to their disability.

The Ticket to Work Program offers:

  • Career counseling.
  • Vocational rehabilitation.
  • Job placement and training.
  • Peer support.

As an Employment Network (EN) of the Ticket to Work program, DEW helps people with disabilities get access to the opportunities and services they need. If you have received a Ticket to Work and are interested in seeking employment, contact an SC Works Center, and we will help you with the rest.
