Ticket to Work

If you are between the ages of 18 and 64 and currently receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) cash benefits, you have a “Ticket to Work.” Social Security’s Ticket to Work Program can provide work incentives which will help you find meaningful work.

 CareerSource Pinellas employs a Disability Program Navigator (DPN)  assists job seekers with disabilities to gain access to services, activities and programs offered at the centers. The DPN also provides information to SSI and SSDI recipients on work incentives offered by the Social Security Administration while assisting with navigating other community resources.

If you are interested in using your Ticket to Work and improving your economic status, please contact Yvette Weiss, Disability Program Navigator, at (727) 608-2498, or via email at yweiss@careersourcepinellas.com
