The term “employment plan” refers to a written agreement between a ticketholder (who
is a title II or XVI disability or blindness beneficiary/recipient (or a concurrent
beneficiary) aged 18 through 64) and an SSA approved provider of employment services,
vocational rehabilitation (VR) services or other support services, or a State VR agency.
An employment plan describes the specific services that the approved provider will
provide to the ticketholder to obtain an employment goal. An employment plan under
the Ticket program may be called an Individual Work Plan (IWP) or an Individualized
Plan for Employment (IPE). The type of employment plan that a ticketholder signs depends
upon the provider who develops the plan. Below you will find a description of each
type of plan.
