If an individual is already a recipient of monthly Social Security disability benefits but is interested in pursuing employment for themselves, the United States Social Security department offers a program that enables beneficiaries to do just that without sacrificing monthly payments.
The agency’s Ticket to Work program enables a person who is currently collecting Social Security disability benefits to look for employment without fear of jeopardizing his or her eligibility for benefits. The Ticket to Work program is designed to encourage and help individuals who depend on government financial aid to improve their lives by finding financial independence.
At the San Antonio offices of the Chris Mayo Law Firm, our legal team understands how vital Social Security disability benefits can be to individuals who have been injured and their families. While we are excited about programs like Ticket to Work for their potential to help individuals find financial freedom, we also know how hard it can be for others to be approved for Social Security programs in order to receive support in the first place. If you are going through the application or appeals process, call us today at (210) 899-5440.
