Ticket to Work is a free and voluntary program for people 18-64 years old.

Are you ready to invest in your success? We are committed to helping you reach your goal of financial independence through employment. SSA pays approved Employment Networks, like Development Workshop, only when the ticket holder goes to work and achieves designated goals.
