Why can’t you help me if I am not on SSDI or SSDI?  We wish we could help everyone! However, Ticket to Work is a federal program that our company helps administer through job placement. Therefore,we can only help those on SSDI or non-retirement SSI per program guidelines.

Are there other government agencies that can help me find a job for free? Your state department of Vocational Rehabilitation may be able to help you. Click here to find a list by state.   

Are there other free ways to get help finding a job?   One way is through Career One Stop which has computers and resources to help you find a job.

Is there a book you suggest for finding a job?   The easiest and most positive approach is through Employment Options: The Ultimate Resource for Job Seekers with Disabilities and other Challenges by Paula Reuben Vieillet.  

Is there any free job help just for people over 55 years old?  Low income seniors may qualify for help through AARP – Senior Program or the Senior Community Service Employment Program. 

If I have already assigned my ticket, can I sign it over to you?  It is possible but you may need to dis-assign your ticket or close your VR case.

Do you help people with hearing or speaking difficulties?  None of our work at home employers currently have the technology to accommodate these challenges nor do we have any work from home “chat only” jobs.  We hope to develop partnerships with work at home employers interested in accessing this untapped talent base.

Do you have any work at home jobs for those who have problems reading normally?   None of our work at home employers’ software is compatible with JAWS and ZOOMTECH.

How much sitting is in a work at home job?   Sitting is an essential job function of most at-home customer service jobs. If sitting up to 4 hours is too much for you, you can either have a desk where you can stand or you can also explore placement in community-based jobs.   New applicants can complete an on-line pre-qualify form and choose Option #2 for Community-based work: http://myemploymentoptions.com/for-job-seekers/.
