Frequently Asked Questions

Program Description
The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is a community service and work based training program for older workers. Authorized by the Older Americans Act, the program provides subsidized, service-based training for low-income persons 55 or older who are unemployed and have poor employment prospects.

Participants have access to both SCSEP services and other employment assistance usually found through your local Unemployment Office Vocational Rehabilitation Dept

For Further Information regarding SCSEP programs in your area contact your local One-Stop Career Center through the Toll-Free Help Line at 1-877-US2-JOBS (1-877-872-5627)

Goal: SCSEP provides both community services and work-based training. Participants work an average of 20 hours a week, and are paid the highest of federal, state or local minimum wage. They are placed in a wide variety of community service activities at non-profit and public facilities, including day-care centers, senior centers, schools and hospitals.

It is intended that community service training serves as a bridge to unsubsidized employment opportunities; SCSEP's goal is to place 30% of its authorized positions into unsubsidized employment annually.

Pass Plan
Plan for Achieving Self-Support-Form SSA-545
Don't fall for that employment network who wants $400.00 to do your pass plan application.

Although if you want to start your own business. You may need help to create your business plan, maybe not. Pass gives you the instructions how to do that too.
It's a simple application, won't take more than a couple of hours to do. Pace yourself, do a little whenever you have time and soon it will be completed. Don't try to do it all at one time.

You can fill it out by hand. Print, in black ink, neatly. Will be fine.
I was told by my person who handles my case that "they want people to be approved and succeed so they will work with the client in order to get their plan approved".

In other words, if you fill out the application completely and correctly and there are any issues they need to work out. They will ask you more questions and you can reply from there.

You all come to a conclusion about what you get together. You don't need an Employment Network to fill out the form, or know just what to do or say.

Just fill it out as best you can, the Pass Program will contact you if it needs to be amended. Don't pay Four Hundred Dollars out of your SSI check, even if they say oh, it's just small monthly installments.
Never pay for services. Anyone who wants money is in business. You don't need to buy this service. Real easy to do yourself, or with a friend's help. You could type it up if you know how. Still easy. I did mine myself, and I sure didn't know much about what I was doing. I just answered the questions to the best of my ability.

The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program is an employment program for people with disabilities who are interested in going to work. Ticket To Work

The Ticket Program is part of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999, legislation designed to remove many of the barriers that previously influenced people’s decisions about going to work because of the concerns over losing health care coverage.
