Iowa VR: SSA Ticket to Work Program


State Policies & Initiatives: 

“The Ticket to Work program is a federal program for Social Security disability beneficiaries age 18 through 64 who receive SSDI or SSI benefits based on a disability and would like to work. It is designed to provide help and support for those beneficiaries who desire to regain financial independence through employment. The program is free; it is voluntary and offers work incentives that allow benefits to continue during the transition to employment. IVRS partners with other Employment Networks (ENs) to ensure our job candidates receive ongoing services once on the job.”
