Ticket to Success (Ticket to Work Program)
If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and are interested in returning to work, we can help. Under the Ticket Program, the Social Security Administration provides disability beneficiaries with a “Ticket” that may be used to obtain needed employment services from organizations called Employment Networks (ENs). Easter Seals North Texas is a member of the Employment Network and can help ticket holders identify and secure competitive employment. By partnering with Easter Seals North Texas, you will receive assistance and support throughout your job search and retention process.
Easter Seals North Texas provides supported employment services as a provider for the Texas Workforce Commission, Vocational Rehabilitation Services (VRS). This method is a one-on-one approach to job placement where our highly trained employment consultants work individually with each job seeker and acts as their advocate to the business community. If you do not receive assistance via DARS or DBS, Easter Seals North Texas may be able to assist you on a fee-for-service basis.
Easter Seals North Texas can also assist individuals with disabilities who are more able to participate in their own job search. Our Job Placement service clients receive resume instruction, interview and job search training and job leads. Our staff develops business relationships in order to assist you in your job search.
Work Incentives Planning and Assistance (WIPA)
