Social Security Ticket to Work Program

What is the Social Security Ticket to Work Program about?

Social Security’s Ticket to Work program is a program that helps with job training for individuals that may have a disability but with that being said, this individual is still motivated to pursue work. Social Security disability recipients that qualify for the Social Security’s Ticket to Work are required to be between the ages of 18-64. The Social Security Ticket Program is free and is only for people that have disabilities and wants to pursue work to gain financial earnings.

If a person is left financial income from deceased parent; will that income affect person from receiving Social Security Disability income check?

Disability benefits are determined by the status of a person as to whether or not they are able to work or not. The Social Security Disability Benefit will not interfere with other types of incoming funds. If the person is not working for that particular money then the disability benefits are safe from being terminated. The Social Security Association should know of the financial aid status. The Social Security Ticket to Work Program was developed to help people that are on disability being able to have the opportunity to return to work.

If a person is on Social Security Disability Income and has started in a temporarily position; how does the person report money that is being earned?

The Social Security Association is to be notified stating that the person will be earning income and how much money that is being earned. Another form of notifying the Social Security Association would be to mail a letter with a review the amount of money that is earned and how long the conversation lasted, the date and time of the conversation, also state the person’s gross income, and also which Social Security official answered the phone call.

If a person is on Social Security Disability; can the person work and how much can be earned in a year?

The person is allowed to pursue work if the person can prove to the Social Security Association can show that this person is not disabled. In addition, the person must be able to show the Social Security Association that health has improved in order to continue with the work. Also, the person can’t earn more than $1,000 each month; that is before taxes are taken out. For further information seek: http://www.ssa.gov/oact/cola/sga.html

If the person is attempting to go back to work full time for more money; the person can apply for the Social Security Ticket to Work Program that lets the person continue to be for a limited time regardless of the amount that is made. The person is required to be physically able to work. For further information, review: http://ssa.gov/work/aboutticket.html

If a person is on Social Security Disability and works part time. Will job affect Social Security Benefits?

A person is allowed to make up to $1,000 monthly for a period of nine months. If a person continues to make up to $1,000 after the required months have passed then the person will not able to receive the Social Security Benefits any longer. It will be suspected that the person is working full time and is no longer disabled. Although, if the person is making under the $1,000 monthly; then the Social Security Association will continue with funding benefits to that individual.

There are people throughout the world may want to continue to work for a small job for some extra income into their household but can’t because, they don’t know of the proper precautions to take due to their Social Security Disability. Experts can help answer questions on the Social Security Ticket to Work Program and how to apply for the program.

  • Ten years ago, at age 62, I applied for and got Social Security.

    Ten years ago, at age 62, I applied for and got Social Security. But I was shocked at how little I got -- merely the minimum amount even though I have worked since age 12. Essentially I am getting what someone who never worked would receive. When I asked for an explanation, different Soc Sec agents claimed I had: 1. worked as a teacher a lot, 2. worked overseas for several years, 3. worked for myself as a consultant. Still and all, to have worked for 50 years and only accumulated enough be paid minimum amounts -- doesn't compute.
    Next I asked for a search of my account and was told it would cost me $30 a year -- YIKES!
    So I gave up. But here I am 10 years later and only receiving $511 a month. Desperate times ---
    QUESTION: Is there a way to CONTEST this amount? Why would it cost me so much money for them to search my records again?
    As I said, does not compute.
  • I have been married 11 years. I'm thinking about filing for

    I have been married 11 years. I'm thinking about filing for divorce. I started collecting my social security early at age 62. I'am now age 67. My husband is 82 and also collecting social security which is quite a bit more than I collect. I know, if I divorce, that I'm eligible to collect on my husband's social security, but based on this information, how much can I collect. I'm receiving $650 a month and he is receiving $1,223 a month. These are the amounts we receive after the medicare fee of $104.90 is taken out of each of our benefits. If I divorce will I receive half of his Social Security or will I be penalized for taking early retirement on my own social security?
