One of the best ways to learn more about Work Incentives and the Ticket to Work Program is to attend a free Work Incentives Seminar Event (WISE) online webinar. The Ticket to Work Program hosts an accessible online event for you and your family to learn about Work Incentives, including Ticket to Work. WISE webinars are typically held on the 4th Wednesday of the month. Register online or call 1-866-968-7842 or 1-866-833-2967 (TTY). You can also learn more about Work Incentives in Social Security's Red Book!
The Red Book serves as a general reference source about the employment-related provisions of the Social Security Disability Insurance and the Supplemental Security Income Programs for educators, advocates, rehabilitation professionals, and counselors who serve people with disabilities.
