Ticket to Work

Are you Receiving Benefits and Interested in Working?

Social Security's Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program helps people between 18 and 64 who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and are interested in going to work. It is completely voluntary.

How It Works

People eligible for the program are issued a "Ticket" by Social Security which they can use to get services they need to go to work. Services can be provided by the Alaska Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) or other agencies, called Employment Networks (ENs).

Find Employment Networks

You can find Employment Networks approved to provide services in Alaska at this website, which is run by Maximus, a company hired by Social Security to answer questions about the Ticket to Work program.

Maximus also has a Ticket to Work Helpline: 1-866-968-7842 where you can:

  • Learn more about Ticket to Work;
  • Find out if you are eligible; and
  • Get help if you have problems with an EN and have first tried working through the EN's complaint process.
