Abstract:

Using data collected through December 2006, nearly five years since the launch of the first phase of the Ticket to Work program, this report found that eligible Social Security beneficiaries continue to use conventional state vocational agencies rather than public and private employment providers--a hallmark of the Ticket to Work program. During the first phase, overall state participation rates rose to 2.2 percent, up from 1.8 percent one year earlier. Participation in states during the second and third phases continued to grow, but at a slightly slower pace.
