Abstract Details for Ticket to Work Program: An Aligned Mission with WIOA

This webinar will provide participants both a basic understanding and insights about new developments regarding the streamlined processes between public workforce entities and the Ticket to Work program. After an introductory interagency leadership message from the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Social Security Administration, this webinar will be broken out in two parts: Presenters will provide a macro perspective outlining the Ticket to Work mission, insights about the Ticket holders themselves as customers, the responsibilities of Employment Networks (ENs) as front-line administrators, and how improved field integration can be fostered through the Partnership Plus model. This will also include an overview of the potential financial benefits of public workforce entities becoming an EN and the administrative services now available to provide support. Presenters will drill down further by highlighting the different EN models available to administer Ticket to Work in the field. Presenters will share their insights on the reasons their entity became an EN to administer Ticket to Work, the current benefits to their agency and its customers stemming from this partnership, and describe their current experience in being an EN.
