This pdocast interview is a follow-up to the Workforce3One Webinar ("The Workforce Connection: SSA and DOL Partnership Action") held on October 20, 2011.

This interview is with Dan O'Brien, Deputy Associate Commissioner, Office of Employment Support Programs, Social Securirty Administration.

DOL/ETA and SSA have partnered to increase the active participation of the public workforce development system in SSA’s Ticket to Work (TTW) Program. Many of SSA’s disability beneficiaries use the One-Stop Career Centers to find work but do not chose to self-identify as persons with disabilities. The workforce development system is missing out on the potential funding stream that the Ticket program can provide and the ability to expand its capacity to serve SSA's disability beneficiaries. SSA, working with DOL/ETA, has streamlined policies and procedures to facilitate the public workforce system becoming Employment Networks (ENs) and actively involved in the TTW Program.
