Default Ticket to Work

Thanks for sharing, Lori. I am sure your post will be an encouragement to others as I know many struggle with similar situations and just don't realize their options.

Thanks, again. Good luck.

Thank you Lori for posting this, what a great resource you've given!

I've just recently started as a Job Coach for people who have disabilities, and I actually have 2 who are currently on SSDI.

This will help greatly, once I have a moment to reach out to you, I will .

Thank you!

Finding a job for disabled people is a really big problem nowadays

Based on what you do for your work, we might be able to partner in someway with the clients that you have and our program and Employers we work with. If you are interested in that, I can give you the name and number of our President who coordiates with agencies nationwide!

I am familar with NTI. They are also a Employment Network in the Ticket to Work program but are extremly large. As a client only a few years ago, I tried applying with them for a short time before I found employment options and lets say it wasn't what I had hope for. (this is just my experience). It is a giant company and I felt like a number. Had a hard time following their process and procedures to even get an account with them. I gave up.

Employment options has less than 20 employees and we truly believe in the 'personal touch' and many of our staff are disabled so we understand in a small way what that is like and the emotions, fears, and concerns of trying to return to work and making ends meat these days.

I mentioned people can apply under 'job seekers' on our website. But if someone still prefers the personal touch, you can call Shieka at 800-441-3114 ext 754 and she will quailfy you over the phone! We believe in treating people as people not a number!

Have a great day all!

I am always here to answer questions, be a shoulder or point people in some direction that might help them!

The great thing about Ticket to Work is also it benefits National Employers. We pre-screen each of our applicants so we know their skill level, their work history and experience. We try to match them with the best job for them.

Benefits to Employers: Any Employer that hires a person in the Ticket to Work program, gets a $2,400 tax credit per indivifual hired. so it is a win win situation.

If anyone owns a business or knows of Employers that could use this information, you can direct them to our website link for Employers: Employers Hire Disabled | My Employment Options
In any case, if you have no time to combine your study and work, you can also visit
https://au.edubirdie.com/pay-for-papers and pay for essay online and get remarkable papers that are always the best and unique.

So honestly, its a win win for everyone.. The Client, us and The Employer we partner with1It is one of the greatest Government programs out there because of the benefits that it offers clients and its free to all SSDI and SSI clients ALWAYS!

I look forward to meeting more of you

Thank you for very useful post and info inside!

Red face Just persevere and keep looking ...

Hi Lori,
Thanks for the article. The chord that struck was the part when presented with a problem, you don't just give up. Usually there is a solution (however, it may take a time to find it!). Sometimes when we have an incapacity (physical ot mental) by working the problem through it gives you a better insite to locating the solution. I was recently without work, ageism had a part to play .. the solution was not that obvious but it helped .Youtube "hope opportunity Influence"

I was a client of Employment Options first and foremost and the help they provided me was free and it changed my life for the better. I am now working part time out of my house, using my skills and contributing to society. My prayers were answered!
If you have questions or want to talk more in private, you can reach me several ways:
I am always an open door whether someone just needs a cyber-hug, a shoulder or wants to know more about Jobs for the Disabled.
