Many recipients of Social Security Disability in South Florida, often ponder whether they can get back into the labor force. Social Security Disability attorney and lawyer, Randy Zeldin, Esq. of Boca Raton, is frequently faced with this question from many of his clients. The answer is the “Ticket to Work” program, offered by the Social Security Administration. Under this program, current recipients of Social Security Disability, are assigned to an Employment Network, within which they can obtain job placement and/or vocational rehabilitation. It is a “ticket” to get off of Social Security Disability and to return to the labor market.
Under the “Ticket to Work” program, participants can continue to receive Medicare benefits for up to 8 years after they return to work. Randy Zeldin, Esq., Social Security Disability attorney, lauds this feature as a “safety net” for workers who wish to attempt to return to work, but fear a loss of Medicare benefits. The “Ticket to Work” program may be an option for Social Security Disability recipients living in Pompano Beach, Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, Delray Beach and Boynton Beach.
