Some people receiving SSD or SSI benefits think they have recovered enough to be able to work, but are afraid of losing benefits if they try and don't succeed.
Fortunately, the Social Security Administration has a Ticket to Work program that allows SSD/SSI beneficiaries to give work a try without risk of losing benefits. The program is called Ticket to Work, and it will allow a beneficiary to keep benefits while exploring employment, receiving vocational rehabilitation, or gaining work experience. Benefits only stop once the beneficiary begins earning enough to support him- or herself.
