The Ticket to Work program connects people with disabilities who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) with the Division of Rehabilitation Services (DORS). If your Ticket to Work is currently assigned to an Employment Network (EN), DORS staff will work with you and your EN to assure that there is coordination of services leading to employment.
According to Social Security rules, if your Ticket is available for assignment, then completing and signing your Individualized Plan for Employment (IPE) and receiving services from DORS means that your Ticket is “In Use” with DORS. DORS will work with you to develop a plan for services to help you to achieve and maintain employment based on your goals. These services can include training, career counseling, vocational rehabilitation, job placement, benefits counseling, and ongoing support services necessary to achieve a work goal.
After you achieve employment and your case with DORS is closed, your Ticket will be taken out of “In Use” status. Once employed, DORS will facilitate your connection with partner Employment Networks that can provide employment supports to help you continue working.
