Home / To work as long as possible


  • Explore ways to use your skills at a job that accommodates your medical condition. You may not be able to perform your old job, but you may be able to teach or supervise others in your field of expertise. You may be pleasantly surprised at the number of jobs you are capable of doing.
  • Participate in online resources like LinkedIn, which can put you in touch with job opportunities and connect you to others in careers of interest to you.
  • Sign up for free job retraining. The Ticket to Work program (https://www.ssa.gov/work/) assists people ages 18 to 64 who receive Social Security benefits because of a disability. The program can retrain you for a job without losing your benefits.
