Using a Ticket Under the Ticket to Work Program

Beneficiary gets ticket from SSA

Beneficiary goes to EN (Employment Network) or State VR (Voc Rehab) to discuss employment plans.

Beneficiary and EN/VR agree on IWP/IPE (Individualized Work Plan/Individualized Plan for Employment) and beneficiary assigns ticket EN/VR notifies PM (Program Manager) that ticket assigned. Since ticket in use, no continuing disability review allowed.

Initial 24 month period begins IF EN/VR notifies PM that beneficiary not actively participating, PM will give beneficiary choice of putting ticket into inactive status, or resuming active participation. If beneficiary choose to resume active participation, has 3 months to demonstrate active participation. If, after 3 months, EN/VR reports to PM that no active participation resumed, PM sends notice to beneficiary that ticket no longer in use. Continuing disability review protection stops.
