Employment Support Services for Adults with Developmental Disabilities:
Job Accommodation Network
The Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work program supports career development for Social Security disability beneficiaries age 18 through 64 who want to work. The Ticket program is free and voluntary. The Ticket program helps people with disabilities progress toward financial independence, all while they keep their Medicare or Medicaid.
PASS Plan Program
A Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows an individual with a disability to set aside otherwise countable income and/or resources s/he may own for a specific period of time in order to pay for items or services to achieve a specific work goal. Any individual who receives SSI benefits or who might qualify for SSI, or any person who receives SSDI (or a similar benefit) and could qualify for SSI, may qualify to have a PASS Plan. There is no limit to the number of successful PASS Plans one may use in a lifetime.
