If you’re looking to start or return to work but collect SSI or SSDI, Social Security can help with their Ticket to Work program

Some people rely on Social Security Income or Social Security Disability Insurance as a main source of income, but would like to start working again, or for the first time.

A program called Ticket to Work will support those on SSI or SSDI that would like to work towards financial stability on their own. Visit www.ssa.gov/work or call the helpline at 1-866-968-7842 or 1-866-833-2967 on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Ticket to Work is a voluntary program.


There is also a program called Plan for Achieving Self-Support, or PASS, that helps manage finances and benefits. PASS bases someone’s SSI on their eligibility, income, and assets and lets someone with a disability set money aside to reach a goal. The overall goal is to reduce or eliminate a person’s need for SSI or SSDI.

PASS must be written and approved in order to complete the program.
