Want to work and improve your earning potential? Then the Ticket to Work Program may be for you!
The Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work Program is for individuals between the ages of 18-64 who are blind or have a disability, have a financial self-sufficiency goal, and receive Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This is a voluntary program that increases the employment opportunities of Social Security’s Disability Beneficiaries and is provided at no cost to you.
As an approved Employment Network (EN) with the Social Security Administration, CareerSource Flagler Volusia (CareerSourceFV) is a proud partner of Ticket to Work, a program designed to assist job seekers with disabilities to increase their income and self-sufficiency. Through the support of career consultants and community partnerships with local businesses, colleges, and training programs, CareerSourceFV works with job seekers to help them develop customized plans to achieve their individual employment goals.
