Ticket to Work

Northern Indiana Workforce Board is an Employment Network for the Ticket to Work program. The Ticket to Work (Ticket) Program offers Social Security beneficiaries with disabilities the choices, opportunities and supports needed to find and keep employment, increase their earnings through work, and reduce their reliance on cash benefits to the greatest extent possible.

Everyone age 18 through 64 who receives Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits because of his or her disability is eligible to participate in the Ticket to Work Program. Participation in the Ticket to Work Program is free and voluntary.

Some of the services offered through WorkOne include job search assistance, career planning and coaching, information regarding Work Incentives and the impact of earned income on your benefits and ongoing employment support.

If you’d like to find out if WorkOne is the right Employment Network for you, or if you'd like to get more information, contact Melissa Gard at [email protected] or 574-807-4752.
