Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program

It's all about choice and opportunity; that's why MAXIMUS partners with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to serve individuals with disabilities through the Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program. The program ensures that Social Security beneficiaries with disabilities have greater choices and opportunities for obtaining employment, vocational rehabilitation, and other support services. We help remove barriers that prevent individuals from seeking employment out of fear of losing their health care coverage
