Ticket to Work
The Georgia Department of Labor (GDOL) is now an authorized Social Security Administration (SSA) Employment Network (EN) provider, eligible to provide employment and retention services to qualified SSA Ticket-to-Work ticket holder participants statewide.
Social Security's Ticket to Work program supports career development for people with disabilities who want to work. The Ticket program is free and voluntary; and helps people with disabilities progress toward financial independence.
Choosing to work can change your life. The Ticket to Work program and Work Incentives allow you to keep your benefits while you explore employment, receive vocational support and gain work experience. If you are age 18 through 64 and receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you already qualify!
Goals of the Ticket to Work program are to:
- Offer beneficiaries with disabilities expanded choices when seeking service and supports to enter, re-enter, and/or maintain employment;
- Increase the financial independence and self-sufficiency of beneficiaries with disabilities; and
- Reduce and, whenever possible, eliminate reliance on disability benefits
