Belleville, Illinois — Jan. 20, 2023 Allsup Employment Services (AES) Director Diane Winiarski will be featured as part of the United Spinal Association’s Pathways to Employment Program during a virtual presentation from 3-4 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023.

During this free virtual event, vocational rehabilitation expert Winiarski will discuss the Social Security Administration’s Ticket to Work (TTW) Program and employment opportunities for people with spinal conditions. Click here to register to attend.

“I am delighted to represent AES for this very important discussion on the Ticket to Work Program, as well as the services we provide as a Social Security-approved Employment Network,” Winiarski said. “Too few people with disabilities, including those with spinal injuries and disorders, do not fully understand the value of Ticket to Work or how this free program can help them transition back to work if they are medically able — without losing disability income or benefits.”

As a long-time champion of United Spinal Association and its Pathways to Employment program, AES participates in virtual and in-person events designed to demystify the TTW Program and highlight employment services and resources for disability beneficiaries who would like to return to work. AES also is a subsidiary of Allsup LLC.

The virtual event covering the Ticket to Work Program will be held from 3-4 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023. Click here to register for this free program.
