Ticket To Work
Welcome to Adelante’s Ticket to Work Program, an approved Employment Network with the Social Security Administration in providing FREE Ticket to Work services. Adelante has been helping individuals receiving SSI or SSDI disability benefits return to work for over 15 years and we provide these services across the country.
As part of your SSI or SSDI benefits Ticket to Work provides free assistance to those individuals with the desire to explore returning to work, reduce their reliance on disability benefits to the fullest extent possible, and make more money than their benefits pay providing a better way of life.
There may also be training opportunities in such cases a person is not able to return to the same type of work they did previously. We can help guide you to the agencies that may be able to assist you with training so that you may qualify for good paying jobs.

“I have not looked for a job in such a long time. Over 20 years. I contacted Adelante’s Ticket to Work program and they provided me with job specific cover letter examples. By following their suggestion on using a special technique in finding companies with potential job postings, I was able to find and applied at two contract manufacturers in Colorado. It can be time consuming with all the businesses that turn out to be sales only, but worth the effort. Thanks for the tip, I am really grateful for your support!”

“I had contacted other Employment Networks but none of them had as much knowledge as what was just explained to me. I greatly appreciate the time that you have taken to explain this to me. I think after having our conversation I would like to partner with your Employment Network to reach my employment goals.”
