National Work Incentives Seminar Event (WISE) webinar is coming up August 24, 2011. This webinar will be on using Ticket to Work for young adults in transition. Social Security offers a program called "Ticket to Work." Ticket To Work is a program for adults with a disability who want to continue to get their Social Security benefits while they transition to greater financial independence. Social Security's Ticket to Work provides the employment support you need to succeed in a job without losing your benefits.
Unfortunately many consumers worry about taking part in it because they don't want to lose their benefits and face it, reading those little brochures the government prints out just isn't quite enough info so people tend to avoid using the service. After going through the incredible hassle of finally being approved for benefits many consumers are worried about risking their benefits by using Ticket to Work. Hopefully this webinar will address some of the issues you're concerned about. It will present information about special rules that may apply to you due to your medical condition/s. They'll teach you about what the Ticket to Work incentives are, where to get more information, and present success stories of people who used their Ticket to Work. So sign up to take part now.
Register online or call 866-968-7842 or 866-833-2967 (TTY). If you can't make this webinar, there are some prior ones archived online that might be of interest to you.
