Author: NCHSD
Date: 06/01/2022
Abstract: This At-A-Glance brief summarizes changes to the Ticket to Work program made in the new regulations recently released by the Social Security Administration. The new regulations create a payment system based on the attainment of increasing levels of employment over time that is attractive enough to entice Employment Networks to participate. The regulations also modify the interaction of the VR cost reimbursement system with the Ticket system to encourage collaboration among state VR agencies and private ENs.
