Ticket to Work Incentive Program
This vocational program focuses on assisting job seekers (referred to as Ticket Holders or Beneficiaries) who are between the ages of 18-64, and receive benefits from the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI). It is a self-referral program. In other words, the job seeker contacts Life-Skills, Inc. directly and there is no waiting period for qualified job seekers.
