About Ticket to Work

​​The Ticket to Work Program, or just "Ticket Program," is part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999. This l​aw removed many of the barriers that used to keep people from going back to work because they were worried about losing health care coverage.

  • Ticket to Work is a Federal program that provides Social Security disability beneficiaries with the choices, opportunities and support they need to find and keep employment. 
  • The Social Security Administration provides disability beneficiaries with a Ticket they can use to find services and jobs from an Employment Network (EN).
  • Maximus is the private company that is contracted by the Social Security Administration to administer the Ticket Program.
