This month, we honor America’s Veterans. Many Veterans with disabilities face challenges reintegrating into society and finding a good job or restarting a career interrupted by their service. The Ticket to Work program can help .Veterans age 18 through 64 who receive Social Security disability benefits (SSDI or SSI) make progress on the path to financial self-sufficiency.
As a Veteran, you have much to offer employers:
- Skills and experience
- Discipline and teamwork
- Courage and resilience
As a Veteran, you have much to gain from working:
- Financial independence
- A more satisfying civilian life
- The chance to connect with people on the job and in your community
Take advantage of Social Security’s Ticket to Work program to get the help you need. Ticket to Work’s support services and resources can help you find a meaningful career after your military service.
