Pilot a program in which Ticket to Work is offered prior to SSDI Recycling Bin

DOL should consider funding a pilot program that expands the Social Security Administration’s (SSA’s) Ticket to Work program to individuals who have been separated from their job but have not yet applied or been approved for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits. Employment networks in the Ticket to Work program have established ties with employers and have the expertise to help affected individuals develop an employment plan. Although evidence on the effectiveness of Ticket to Work has been fairly meager, it may prove to be much more effective to allow employment networks to serve individuals very soon after they are separated from their jobs.
