Impairment Related Work Expense

Let's look at the next program, which is the Ticket to Work

and Self-Sufficiency Program. This is another work incentive

that is available to individuals that has only been around since

the Ticket to Work legislation was passed in 1999. This is

basically a vocational program. Like the Ticket to Work

program, it's designed to give the individual greater choice and

control in directing their rehabilitation and employment

process. Basically, what happened was the eligibility

beneficiary gets a ticket that they then can deposit with an

approved employment network. They can then access goods and

services that they need to reach their employment goal from that

employment network. The goal of this program is to give the

person greater choice and control.
