Welcome to Maine’s Ticket to Work
What is the Ticket to Work?
The “Ticket to Work” is
part of a comprehensive national initiative designed to assist people
with the training and support they need to go to work. Social Security
beneficiaries with disabilities can find employment, vocational rehabilitation
(VR) and other support services from public and private providers.
Ticket to Work, originally launched in 2002, was updated by new regulations, which became effective in July 2008. Some of the new regulations change available payment options for Employment Networks so they can be reimbursed for services provided to Ticket holders. Opportunities to coordinate provision of services between several agencies have also been expanded.
The name comes from a law passed by Congress in 1999 – the Ticket
to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act.
Since 2003, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has mailed Tickets
in Maine to eligible beneficiaries. SSA disability beneficiaries
who receive a Ticket may use it to obtain the services they need from
an Employment Network (EN) of their choice.
