Ticket To Work Program Expands To USVI To Serve People With Disabilities

Community Center / News / Virgin Islands / June 14, 2018

The Ticket to Work (TTW) program, a national program that provides job services to people who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) has expanded its services to residents of the United States Virgin Islands, according to a release issued Wednesday.

The jobs services are provided by AMSI, an employment network and nonprofit organization based in Puerto Rico, which signed collaborative agreements during 2017 with the American Job Centers managed by the Virgin Islands Department of Labor in St. Thomas and St. Croix, as well as the Virgin Island Association for Independent Living. On the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, the TTW team delivers services in St. Thomas, and on the second and fourth Thursday of each month, these services are provided in St. Croix, according to the release.

Employment networks help people who receive SSDI benefits prepare for, find or maintain employment. Everyone who receives SSDI because of their disability may participate in this free and voluntary program. AMSI has provided Employment Network services since 2006 and has helped more than 400 individuals with disabilities find and keep jobs in Puerto Rico.

Residents interested in these job services can visit the Department of Labor, the Virgin Island Association for Independent Living or call the TTW team at (340) 277-3335.
