Golden Sierra is an Employment Network (EN) approved by the Social Security Administration to participate in the Ticket to Work program. Beneficiaries are encouraged to inquire about the availability of work incentives counseling, job development, and other supportive services.
If you are interested in choosing work and becoming self-sufficient, Golden Sierra is here to help. For some, there is confusion and anxiety about how earning money will impact cash and medical benefits – this often discourages individuals from pursuing an employment goal. Golden Sierra staff are trained to navigate these complex programs and help you choose which option is best for you.
We also provide information about how to approach employers, when to disclose a disability, and how to address reasonable accommodation issues.
If you would like more information about our programs and services, please contact your local Connections center.
