Thursday, December 12, 11:45 a.m.–1:30 p.m. (EDT)
Mathematica’s Washington, DC, office
The Ticket to Work (TTW) program was developed to encourage the nearly 11 million working-age people on the disability rolls to find jobs and become economically self-sufficient. The program seeks to connect these individuals to job-related services via a wide array of qualified providers, called employment networks (ENs). In 2008, the Social Security Administration made several regulatory changes to TTW to boost EN and beneficiary participation in the program. An expert panel will discuss impacts of these changes on the program. Registration and information.
