Workforce Investment Act

Former President Clinton signed the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act on December 17, 1999. The Act was designed to bring about positive change to the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing them more choices in the training and support they need to return to work.

Many SSI and SSDI Beneficiaries in Oklahoma have received a Ticket to Work since the program began in February 2002. Those SSI/SSDI recipients that have not received a Ticket to Work may apply for one by calling Maximus at 866-968-7842
