Just because you have been determined to be disabled does not mean that in time you will not be able to return to the work force. Of course, the government understands that one would be won’t to attempt to return to work if doing so meant their disability life line were immediately cut-that’s why the Ticket to Work Program was invented.
As the attached article shows, while participating in the Ticket to Work Program, disability beneficiaries can get the help they need to safely explore their work options without immediately losing their benefits and find the job that is right for them. Beneficiaries also can use a combination of Work Incentives to maximize their income until they begin to earn enough to support themselves. Therefore, the individual can:
Go to work without automatically losing disability benefits;
Return to benefits if he or she has to stop working;
Continue to receive healthcare benefits; and
Be protected from receiving a medical Continuing Disability Review (CDR) while using the ticket and making the expected progress with work or educational goals.
