Ticket Program Agreement


Under the results payment system, EEs can receive payments for ticket holders with sufficient income to qualify for zero profit status. For SSDI ticket holders, SSI ticket holders can make payments for up to 36 months and up to 60 months. Payments to ENs account for 67% of the SSDI circuit board ($758 for 2014) and SSI ($436 for 2014). In accordance with the provisions of the SSA, a ticketing period ends if (1) the entitlement to SSDI benefits ends or if the entitlement to SSI disability benefits ends for reasons other than work or income, (2) after a public agency has exhausted the payment of the results on the basis of that note, (3) the beneficiary no longer progresses in a timely manner towards self-employment in accordance with the SSA guidelines, or (4) the beneficiary withdraws from an NS and does not reissue his ticket within three months. Brigida Hernandez, Mary Joyce Cometa and Jessica Velcoff et al., “Perspectives of people with disabilities on employment, vocational rehabilitation and the Ticket to Work Program,” Journal of Vocational Rehabilitation, No. 3(2007), if a ticket holder`s business activity meets the requirements for both the Phase 1 and Phase 2 stages under the Milestone Outcome payment system, ENs may potentially collect additional monthly payments in a “result” phase for ticket holders with sufficient income to qualify for zero cash benefit status. In other words, the ticket holder has earned long enough at the AMS level that he no longer receives cash payments from the SSA. For ticket holders who qualify for the result phase, NEs may receive additional payments of 36% of PCBs, based on the following schedule: the Ticket program has helped thousands of people with disabilities return to their jobs since their inception in 1999. However, despite the availability of the program, a significant number of recipients have not achieved sustainable employment, resulting in economic self-sufficiency and a decrease in dependence on disability benefits. Despite the improvements that have been made over the years, the ticket program faces fundamental challenges in trying to achieve its objectives. First, the program is not the primary mission of the SSA, which is to manage old age, survival and disability insurance (OASDI) and ISS programs.

Second, the program includes administrative structures and services that already have strong government and local workforce systems. Finally, the program aims to promote the choice of beneficiaries in terms of access to employment services and to encourage providers by paying for successful individual results, but these characteristics entail a considerable administrative burden for beneficiaries and service providers. A network of jobs consists either of a single provider of these services or an association of these providers, organized in such a way as to consolidate their resources into a single entity. A work network can meet subsection requirements (4) by providing services directly or entering into agreements with other individuals or institutions providing appropriate placement services, vocational rehabilitation services or other support services. 20 C.F.R. 411.

411,500. For 2014, the SSDI circuit is $1,130.89 per month and $650.44 per month for SSI. In December of each year, SSA charges a circuit board for the SSDI and SSI programs for the coming year. A disabled recipient who holds a ticket to work and takes care of himself can assign the ticket to any employment network of the recipient`s choice who, under the program, is ready to accept the task.
