Individuals With Disabilities

Career Seekers with Disabilities

Did you know that there are more than 18 million individuals with a disability who are employed throughout the United States? Our disability success coaches work hand in hand with individuals who have a disability to connect them with the resources and services available at our career centers. We even offer opportunities for our customers to meet with employers who are committed to hiring from special populations.

Ticket to Work Program

If you are between the ages of 18 and full retirement age and receiving SSI and/or SSDI, you may be interested in our Ticket to Work Program. The program is designed to remove barriers that previously influenced people’s decisions about going to work because of their concerns over losing health care coverage. Below is a list of services that are provided through the program:

    Career Seekers with Disabilities
    • Job placement assistance
    • Training and education
    • Money management/budgeting for financial independence
    • Work incentive counseling
    • Satisfaction of competitive employment
    • Access to other community resources to meet your need
