About Ticket to Work

The Ticket to Work Program helps you obtain vocational rehabilitation, training, job referrals and other employment support services free of charge.

When you take part in the Ticket program, these services are provided by employment networks, which are organizations/agencies like Citizens Development Center that have agreed to work with Social Security to provide employment services and other support to adults with disabilities.

The Ticket program is a good fit for people who want to improve their earning potential and who are committed to preparing for long-term success in the workforce.
