At Guided Life Care Planning Services we believe every individual should have the opportunity for employment.
If you receive Social Security disability and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits, you may wonder how working could impact your disability benefits. We can help with the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program.
Through Ticket to Work, you can obtain training, job referrals and other employment support services free of charge. Some of the work incentives include:
- continued cash benefits for a time while you work;
- continued Medicaid or Medicare while you work; and,
- if your benefits stop because of substantial earnings, you have five years to ask Social Security to restart your benefits if you're unable to keep working.
If you are an adult, age 18 to 64, receive SSI and/or SSDI, and have the desire and capability to work, we can help!

- Career Success planning
- Work readiness assessment

As an Employment Network (EN) through the Social Security Administration's Ticket to Work Program, Guided Life Care Planning Services’ helps people with disabilities get access to the opportunities and services they need.
The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program increases opportunities and choices for Social Security disability beneficiaries to obtain employment, Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), and other support services from public and private providers, employers, and other organizations.
Developed as part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999, the program was designed to remove some of the barriers that kept people with disabilities from going back to work, such as the concern of losing health care coverage.
