1. Get yourself approved for SSDI.
If you’re not on SSDI, get help with your application or appeals from the experts at True Help. Take their free assessment to get started.
2. Tell us about your situation.
You’ll talk with one of our experts by phone about your current situation and plans for the future. They’ll ask about your condition, how soon you’d like to work, what you’d like to do, and more.
3. Create your Individual Work Plan.
This is an official form and your roadmap for going back to work. It includes history, job type, goals, and your choice for Employment Network. We fill everything out; you review and sign.
4. Assign your Ticket to Work.
Once you sign your Individual Work Plan, we use the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work portal to assign your ticket. This step is what makes you working with us official.
5. Explore your work options.
If you’d like help searching for a job, we’ll support you with coaching and get you started with resume building tips, links to job search websites and more. As you search, you’ll keep a log.
6. Stay on track with check-ins.
While you’re unemployed, we’ll check in monthly to see if you need anything. Once you’re employed, we’ll check in with you every 3 months and send wage reports to the SSA for you.
7. Focus on work and keep benefits.
You’ll have our support and SSDI benefits protection through the Ticket to Work program for up to 7 years. If you have a medical setback, just call. If things are going well, enjoy your success.
