Ticket to Work

Ticket to Work, a program overseen by the Social Security Administration, helps people receiving Social Security benefits become employed. People with disabilities receive their Ticket to Work from Social Security. Each ticket holder chooses an Employment Network to help them find and keep work. Staff and the person develop a plan together that leads to employment.

Elmview is an Employment Network, accepts individual Tickets, and works directly with people with disabilities to help them find a job and to keep that job once employed.

Eligibility
