Ticket to Work Program

The Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work Program supports career development for people with disabilities who want to work. Social Security disability beneficiaries ages 18 through 64 qualify. The Ticket to Work program is free and voluntary. The goal of the program is to help people with disabilities progress toward financial stability and independence.

Ticket to Work Overview

Ticket to Work connects people with free employment services to help them decide if working is right for them, prepare for work, find a job or maintain success while they are working. If a person chooses to participate, he/she will receive services from an authorized Ticket to Work service provider in areas such as:

  • Career counselingTicket to Work logo
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Resume development
  • Interview preparation
  • Job placement and training
  • Benefits counseling (assistance with understanding your benefits and working with the Social Security Administration)

Currently, KenCrest is working with CIS (Community Integrated Services), an established Employment Network (EN), to be able to provide these services through a pilot program. KenCrest will serve as an important part of a person’s “employment team” that will help him/her on the journey to financial independence.

Choosing to work can change one’s life. The Ticket to Work Program and Work Incentives allow a person to keep benefits while exploring employment, receiving vocational support, and gaining work experience. Anyone age 18 through 64 and receives Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) already qualifies!

Ticket to Work – Take These Easy Steps to Get Started

1. If a person meets the age requirement (18 – 64), receives SSDI/SSI, and would like to find employment, contact KenCrest at wpollock@kencrest.org or call 215-407-1086.
2. Once the person and KenCrest decide to work together, they will develop a plan to help the participant reach his/her work goals. KenCrest will then help the person make progress towards those goals and, eventually, a more financially independent future.
3. Participants must work towards the established goals, earn a specified wage level, and complete certain training/education requirements in exchange for the free services provided by KenCrest.
