What is an Employment Network?
An EN in an organizational entity (state or local, public or private) that enters into a contract with Social Security with the intention of coordinating and delivering employment services, VR services, and/or other support services under the Ticket program. These services are provided by the EN to Social Security beneficiaries who have assigned their Ticket to the EN which has accepted the Ticket. To find out more about who can assist beneficiaries to better understand the Ticket program and where they may go for employment support services, visit: http://www.ssa.gov/work/overview.html.

What is the Ticket to Work Program?
The Ticket to Work program provides Social Security disability beneficiaries the choices, opportunities and support needed to become and stay employed, increase their earnings, and eventually leave and remain off benefits by being fully self-supportive. Under this program, the Social Security issues ‘tickets’ to eligible beneficiaries who, in turn, may choose to assign those tickets to an Employment Network (EN) of their choice to obtain employment services, vocational rehabilitation services, or other support services necessary to achieve a vocational (work) goal. The EN, if they accept the ticket, will coordinate and provide appropriate services to help the beneficiary find and maintain employment. To learn more about the Ticket program, visit: https://yourtickettowork.com/web/ttw/en-about-ticket-to-work.

Who can receive services at an EN?
Anyone between the ages of 18 and 64 who receives Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is eligible to receive services at an EN.

What services do ENs provide?
All ENs provide career counseling, job placement, and ongoing support services. Some provide additional services; visitors to www.ServiceLocator.org/ENs can view a list of services offered by each provider in their search results.

How does CareerOneStop’s Employment Network search work?
Get started at www.ServiceLocator.org/ENs by entering a ZIP code or city and state to create a list of ENs in that area. Some ENs provide services in local communities, across a state, or in multiple states. Some also help people determine which services would best meet their needs online or by phone. Because they offer differing services, individuals should contact several ENs to determine the best fit. Find email and phone contact information as well as a list of services offered by each EN at www.ServiceLocator.org/ENs.
