The Ticket to Work program, administered through the Social Security Administration, seeks to drastically reduce this trend by offering voucher-like "tickets" to eligible disability insurance (SSDI) and social security income (SSI) recipients that can be used to obtain needed services and jobs from a newly designated Employment Networks. The "ticket" is designed to help these individuals overcome obstacles to securing and maintaining employment, such as a lack of transportation resources.

How Transportation Providers Can Serve Ticket Recipients

To attract and serve clients using Ticket to Work, a provider must be recognized as or become part of an "Employment Network" (EN). These agencies agree to work with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to provide services identified in the Ticket to Work program. Employment Networks are recognized by the SSA through the Ticket Program Manager, Maximus, Inc. The request for proposal (RFP) can be downloaded at the Ticket to Work website at www.yourtickettowork.com/rfp or by calling Maximus toll-free at 1-866-YOURTICKET (1-866-968-7842). The process is non-competitive and open ended.
