Programs Help Disabled Workers Transition Back Into Work

Many criminal instances of fraud involving Social Security Disability Insurance (“SSDI”) or Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) benefits involve beneficiaries who continue to work while receiving disability benefits. While, in most cases, disability beneficiaries should not be working while also claiming to be disabled, the Social Security Administration (“SSA”) does offer programs, like the “Ticket to Work” one, which enable people to transition back into the work force.

A “Ticket to Work” provides disability beneficiaries a literal ticket in the mail that they can use with certain employment networks that the beneficiary chooses. These networks provide many resources to disabled workers hoping to return to work. The networks offer career counseling, job search help and job training, amongst other resources. A Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer can provide more information to disability beneficiaries about returning to work.

In exchange for exploring work options, applicants receive other benefits from the government. When they make such employment efforts, the government may put their medical reviews on hold, for example, so that they can continue to have Medicare coverage even if they stop receiving SSDI benefits. There are certain amounts that a beneficiary can make while transitioning back into work while continuing to receive some disability benefits. The eventual goal is for the beneficiary to return to work and make more money than he or she would be receiving from SSDI or SSI. More details on the “Ticket to Work” program are available from a Tulsa Social Security Disability attorney.


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
