Welcome to the Social Security Ticket to Work Beneficiary Satisfaction Survey.
We’d like to learn more about your experience, if any, with the Ticket Program, including the services provided by your Employment Network (EN). Your participation in this survey helps us improve the Ticket Program and ensures that ENs provide effective services to Ticket Program participants.
Participation in this survey is voluntary and will not affect your eligibility for benefits now or in the future. Social Security will safeguard the information you provide and will use it for limited purposes, consistent with applicable Federal law, regulations and directives. We will not include your name or other identifying information in any published reports or presentations about the survey.

- To make sure the results of the survey represent everyone eligible for the Ticket Program, it is very important to hear from everyone who received the survey invitation.
