An Employment Program for SSI & SSDI Participants
Are you interested in and capable of working full time?
Do you have the skills needed for the field in which you wish to work?
If you are ready and able to work full time, we are here to help!
Ticket to Work is a voluntary nationwide initiative for individuals with disabilities offering a risk free opportunity to try working, or to increase the number of hours worked, without jeopardizing cash benefits.
Become a productive worker, earn a livable wage and maintain your health insurance. We can assess the possibilities for you to achieve steady long-term employment. Missourians receiving SSI can earn up to $33,754 in 2013, and maintain Medicaid coverage.
Did you know employment earnings from a 9-month trial work period will not reduce your SSDI benefit payment? After your trial work period, only earnings greater than $1,040 per month will impact your SSDI benefit payment. If employment ends within 3 years, there is no need to re-apply for SSDI benefits.
Why Assign your Ticket to Work to Job Point?
- You will be exempt from continuing medical reviews.
- You will receive cash incentives to retain employment.
- You will obtain long term employment support and assistance with job related concerns.
- You will benefit from the expertise of a Certified Benefits Planning Specialist.
Federal law extends Medicare coverage for most working beneficiaries for at least 60 months. An employer sponsored healthcare plan or Medicare Buy-In are options for continuing medical coverage, if and when Medicare is discontinued.
