The Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program enables those who receive disability benefits to try to transition back into the workplace without the risk or fear of losing their benefits. Ticket to Work offers the following:

  • Support: An employment network (EN) that contracts with the Social Security Administration offers career counseling, job placement, and ongoing support services.
  • Nine-month trial work period (TWP): The TWP allows you to test your ability to work for at least nine months. During your TWP, you will receive full SSDI benefits no matter how much you earn as long as your work activity is reported and you have a disabling impairment.
  • Expedited Reinstatement (EXR) of benefits: If your benefits stopped because of your earnings level, you can request to have your benefits reinstated without having to complete a new application. While Social Security determines your benefits reinstatement, you are eligible to receive temporary benefits for up to six months.
  • Protection from Medical Continuing Disability Reviews (CDR): You will not have to undergo a medical continuing disability review (CDR) while participating in the Ticket to Work program.
