What is Ticket to Work?

Ticket to Work (TTW) is an employment program for people with disabilities who are interested in going to or returning to work. If you qualify, you can obtain a Ticket through the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) and use your Ticket to obtain employment services from any Rise program that you otherwise qualify for. Your Ticket can be used for all individual competitive employment programs.

Ticket to Work can be used in programs such as:
