Interim Report
Major Findings


                 2
               Beneficiaries
      National Beneficiary Survey
• Only about 36% of ticket eligible beneficiaries
  reported that they had heard of the program.
• TTW participants are far more likely than other
  beneficiaries to have employment goals and
  expectations
• Although most TTW participants clearly have
  employment-related aspirations, many still do
  not see themselves earning enough to leave
  disability benefits.

                                                    3
          Employment Networks

• Increasing EN participation continues to be
  challenging.
• To break even, ENs need about 23 payments per SSI-
  only Ticket and 11 payments per DI Ticket.
• ENs average less than1½ payments in the first two
  years a Ticket is assigned
• It generally takes more than two years for SSA/VR
  clients to reach 0-benefit status, so we may see
  improvement in Ticket outcomes.

                                                 4
       Vocational Rehabilitation


About 90% of all assignments are with VR under
 the traditional reimbursement payment option.




                                             5
   Other Work Incentive Programs


SSA’s Extended Period of Eligibility and Medicaid
           While Working (1619 a & b)
      provisions were both associated with
       higher levels of Ticket participation.
