About Ability360 Employment Services (AES)

Who are we?

Ability360 Employment Services (AES) provides employment assistance and support services to persons with disabilities seeking employment through the Ticket to Work program as part of your Social Security Disability Insurance. We are one of the largest and most successful organizations providing services through the Ticket program in the entire country. All of our staff members have personal experience with disability and most of us have been on Social Security benefits at some point in our own lives. We understand the questions and concerns you have about returning to work because we have been there. Our job is to analyze your specific situation and goals and advise you throughout your job search and for up to 45 months beyond.

Who Does AES Serve?

If you are in current pay status under the Social Security Administration’s Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) programs and are between the ages of 18 and 64, you are eligible for services through the Ticket to Work program. This program is strictly voluntary and may be used anytime you are ready to pursue employment. AES considers a number of factors when determining whether to accept a ticket from someone. Motivation, sincerity, and attitude on the part of the ticket holder are primary factors in this decision. AES also considers work history, qualifications for the occupation sought, and whether the services we offer will meet your needs.

AES also helps coordinate job skills training to brush up on existing skills or learn new ones if that will lead to self-supporting employment.

How Do I Get Started?

Completing the online application is the first step toward realizing your goal of returning to work and reducing your dependency on benefits. Simply answer each question and submit the form. Once we receive your responses, they will be reviewed and evaluated. A staff person from AES will follow up with you to discuss your answers and, if appropriate, to continue the process. If you are a good candidate for our program, we invite you to attend a program orientation where we will discuss more about the Ticket to Work, how your benefits are impacted by working and earning income, and share with you more about our program and the services we can offer to you.
