Welcome to the Web site of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Advisory Panel. We are pleased to have you visit and we hope you will find it a great resource for information about the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999 and its implementation.

The Ticket to Work legislation established the Advisory Panel within the Social Security Administration to advise the President, the Congress and the Commissioner of Social Security on issues related to work incentive programs, planning and assistance for individuals with disabilities and the Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program established under this Act. We have an important role to play in the implementation of this very significant law, which provides the greatest opportunity for America's citizens with disabilities to return to work.

We are a bipartisan group of twelve volunteer citizens, four of whom were appointed by the President, four by the Senate and four by the House of Representatives. We represent an excellent cross-section of individuals with diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds and with diverse experience and expert knowledge as recipients, providers, disabled veterans, employers and employees in the fields of employment services, vocational rehabilitation and other disability related support services.
