Ticket to Work Program: Helping People Find Their Path
Posted: December 02, 2020

(NAPSI)—As Americans celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it’s worth acknowledging the increased support options available to people with disabilities who want to work.   

Since 1999, Social Security’s Ticket to Work (Ticket) Program has helped thousands of Social Security disability beneficiaries find their way to financial independence. The Ticket Program can connect you with free, individualized employment services to help you decide if working is right for you, prepare for the workforce, search for a job and stay employed.   

If you choose to participate, you can receive services such as career counseling, benefits counseling, job training and job search assistance from State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies and authorized providers known as Employment Networks (EN). Some ENs offer specific types of support services while others have experience serving certain populations. Adults (ages 18 through 64) who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) due to a disability are eligible to participate.  

If you feel ready for work, don’t let the fear of immediately losing your benefits stand in the way. Social Security rules and programs known as Work Incentives may make it possible for you to explore working while maintaining access to some or all of your benefits payments and your Medicare/Medicaid coverage. If your disability interferes, you may be able to return to benefits without a new application.   

Because each person’s circumstances are different and there are a variety of Work Incentives, job seekers are encouraged to consult a Benefits Counselor. These specially trained professionals can help you understand how employment will affect your benefits.  

This could be the year to find out what’s possible for you, Visit the website to learn from a score of Ticket Program participants who traded their disability payments for a paycheck and improved their self-confidence and financial independence with help from the Ticket Program.   

For over 20 years, the Ticket Program has helped thousands of people find their path to a better future. It can help you find yours. To learn more, call the Ticket to Work Help Line at 1-866-968-7842 or 1-866-833-2967 (TTY), Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET, or visit choosework.ssa.gov.

Six Ways To Protect Your Mail And Packages
Updated: December 04, 2020 - 2:31 am

(NAPSI)—Every day, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service works to protect your mail, USPS employees and USPS facilities. It’s just as important to it as it is to you that these items reach their destinations safely, and the Post Office could use your help to keep your mail and packages safe. 

Here are a few tips to consider this holiday season: 

1.Don’t leave your delivered mail and packages unattended. You wouldn’t leave important items sitting on the front seat of your unlocked car overnight. So don’t leave your mail and packages sitting in mailboxes or on front porches for any length of time.

2.Going out of town? Hold your mail at the Post Office. You can sign up for Hold Mail service on usps.com if you plan on being away from home for a few days. Your letters and packages will be held securely at your Post Office until you pick them up or request they be delivered to your home.

3.Plan ahead. Ship using Hold for Pickup. If you are sending packages, you can choose the Hold for Pickup option on usps.com. The packages will be safely held at the recipient’s local Post Office until they can pick it up. If you are expecting a package, you can redirect it to your Post Office by selecting Hold for Pickup using Intercept a Package under Track & Manage on usps.com.

4.Customize the delivery. If you are expecting something you know will not fit in your mailbox and you won’t be home to receive it, you can authorize the carrier to leave it in a specified location. Visit usps.com, enter the tracking number in Track a Package, and select Delivery Instructions.

5.Secure the shipment using USPS Special Services. Signature Confirmation helps ensure the package ends up in the right hands by requiring a first initial and last name at the time of delivery. For your most valuable packages, you can opt for Registered Mail service. Registered Mail receives special handling from the time it’s mailed until the time it’s delivered.

6.Monitor your front door. If you have a home security camera system, and you catch any mail thieves in the act, save the video and alert the Postal Inspectors.

Gifts That Do A World Of Good
Updated: December 01, 2020 - 2:31 am

(NAPSI)—This holiday season, you don’t have to look far to find items that deliver great features and functionality but use less energy. Products that earn the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR label save money on energy bills and help protect the environment, making them gifts that do a world of good. 

With a wide range of things to wrap up—from smart thermostats, laptops, tablets and other electronics, appliances and even lighting—you can put a bow on a gift that has been independently certified to meet strict standards for energy efficiency. 

A typical household spends about $2,000 a year on energy bills. A home outfitted with products that have earned the ENERGY STAR label can save 30% or about $575 a year on household energy bills. Over their lifetime these products save about $8,750 on utility bills and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 77,000 pounds of carbon dioxide.

The ENERGY STAR Holiday Gift Guide at www.energystar.gov/holiday features energy-saving products popular this time of year, along with special deals from manufacturers, retailers, and utilities that participate in the ENERGY STAR Program. Looking for the ENERGY STAR label on products specially priced for the holidays means you save on the initial price, plus keep saving through the holidays and beyond.
