The Ticket to Work Program provides most people who receive Social Security benefits (SSI, SSDI) more choices for receiving employment services. Under this program, the Social Security Administration (SSA) issues tickets to eligible beneficiaries who, in turn, may choose to assign those tickets to an Employment Network (EN) of their choice. An EN is a public or private organization—such as a community mental-health center—that enters into a contract with SSA to coordinate and deliver employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, and/or other support services to help people achieve a vocational (work) goal. The EN coordinates and provides appropriate services to help the beneficiary find and maintain employment.
