New Notice on Ticket to Work and State Workforce Development Systems

The U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration has issued a notice (TEN 6-11) highlighting ways public workforce development systems can increase their participation in the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work (TTW) program. TTW is intended to provide people who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) with greater choices in obtaining employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, or other support services. The new notice provides information on TTW for state workforce agencies, local workforce investment boards, and One-Stop Career Centers.
