Ticket to Work is a federal program that our company helps administer through job placement. As an authorized Employment Network, we can only help those who currently receive SSDI or SSI (non-retirement) per program and SSA guidelines. However, we often host free online national job fairs and webinar workshops throughout the year- that are open to the general public. To be added to our events email list: CLICK HERE.

It is possible, but you may first need to dis-assign your ticket or close your VR case first, before you can assign your ‘Ticket’ to our agency.
At the present time, none of our Work At Home employers currently have the technology to accommodate these challenges; nor do we have regular Work At Home “chat only” jobs. We do hope to develop partnerships in the future with Work At Home employers interested in accessing this untapped talent base. We also hope that more employers will upgrade their software in the future to be compatible with assistive technology.
Unfortunately, our Work At Home employers’ software is not compatible with JAWS and ZOOMTECH. We hope that in time more employers will upgrade their software in the future to be compatible with assistive technology. We ‘directly’ place our clients with employers, so therefore, we do not own the Work At Home software.
Sitting is an essential job function of most Work At Home customer service jobs. If sitting up to 4 hours is too much for you, you can either have a desk where you can stand or you can also explore placement in our community-based jobs. New applicants can complete a community on-line application form here.
