If you have heard of Social Security’s Ticket to Work, Ticket program, or sometimes simply the Ticket, then you have likely heard of Work Incentives—the special rules and guidelines for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries ages 18 through 64 who are ready to enter or re-enter the workforce. What you may not know however, is that Social Security offers more than 25 Work Incentives specifically designed to help you succeed at work so you can eventually work your way off benefits and into a better, more self-supporting lifestyle.
One of the best ways to learn about Ticket to Work and Work Incentives is through a Work Incentives Seminar Event (WISE) webinar. Join us on February 29 from 1:00-2:30 p.m., EST, as we explore some of your most frequently asked questions during the National WISE Webinar: You Asked. We Answer. Work Incentives That Work For You. This month’s WISE webinar will answer a few of the most frequently asked questions about Work Incentives:
You asked, “What if I am ready to work?” We’ll provide information about:
- Ticket to Work & Work Incentives
- Substantial Gainful Activity
- Timely Progress Review
- Trial Work Period
You asked, “What if I succeed at work?” We’ll provide information about:
- Extended Period of Eligibility
- Expedited Reinstatement
- Earned Income Exclusion

Immediately following the February 29 WISE webinar, we encourage you to join our live Facebook Question & Answer session where Ticket to Work and Work Incentives experts continue to answer your questions.
