Ticket To Work Regulations Published
January 3, 2001

The Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act Final Rule Regulations were published on December 28, 2001 in the Federal Register.

According to the Social Security Administration: "These final regulations are intended to expand the options available for Social Security disability beneficiaries and disabled or blind SSI beneficiaries to access vocational rehabilitation (VR) services, employment services, and other support services that are necessary for such beneficiaries to obtain, regain or maintain employment that reduces their dependency on cash benefits."

Pennsylvania will enter the Ticket to Work program during Phase III, which will be implemented in calendar year 2003. For more information, or a copy of the 165 page publication, contact Georgia E. Myers, Regulations Officer, Social Security Administration, 6401 Security Boulevard, Baltimore, MD, 21235, e-mail to regulations@ssa.gov, or telephone 410-965-3632 or TTY 410-966-5609.

The regulations can also be accessed online through the Government Printing Office web site, in either text format (165 pages) or PDF format (74 pages), at www.access.gpo.gov/su_docs/fedreg/a011228c.html.
