    Ticket to work

    Has anybody used a "ticket to work" from the social security administration to go back to work?

    I am wondering about this that I found while plundering the SS site....

    http://www.aaatakecharge.com/index.html

    If you find your own job, you will get the money the social security administration would pay an Employment Network to employ you. They will send you $270.00 a month for five years to go back to work and it doesnt matter how much income you have.

    Has anyone used this?

    My old job is open at the hospital I used to work at and I am going up to talk to them tomorrow. I will post more on this later...

    DD, different states participate at different levels in Ticket to Work. NJ has a very strong program while MO has stripped it to barebones. You would need to look at your state website

    I just got off the phone with the WIC (work incentives coordinator) for my area in North Carolina. I had called the SS 1-800 number yesterday twice after being hung up on the first time.

    Thanks Cheesecake!!

    The information they gave me was incorrect. Imagine that??? Anyway, most of the laws changed in 2001 as did individual states ticket to work program.

    If you are thinking about returning to work...do find the WIC for your area and call them. They have a manual that explains every aspect of Expedited Reinstatement and trial work periods.

    I found out today that I will get another trial work period and extended period of eligibility..... This is wonderful news!!!!

    how do you find a WIC? When I look here I come up with a food program for Women Infants and Children
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.

    Ticket to Work? It might not be a Work Incentive!

    Be very careful about TTW&WI it is supposed to be a good thing I am not to sure it is all it is cracked up to be. SGI (substantial gainful employment) based on 1960's income levels and benefit losses greater than income gains, only a politician could have dreamed up a SCAM.

    I have assigned my ticket to them.

    But SSDI is still sending my direct deposits. I cant get them stopped.

    Yep they have paid me five months past the end of my trial work period.

    I will let yall know if I ever get the money from my ticket to work....that is if they ever stop my SSDI.
