Ticket to Work

TheTicket to Work program is a Social Security Administration program that can help those receiving Social Security Administration benefits (Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability Insurance and/or both) to achieve gainful employment. For some, this can be a complicated and challenging process. Social Security Administration recognizes these challenges and offers employment support services to individuals who have the goal of achieving financial self-sufficiency through the Ticket to Work program. Disability Network of Northern Michigan is a member of the American Dream Employment Network and can offer full employment network services under the Ticket to Work program.
