Continued Payment under a Vocational Rehabilitation Program or Similar Program (Section 301)

If SSA finds that you no longer have a disabling impairment due to medical improvement, your benefit payments usually stop. However, if you are participating in an appropriate program of vocational rehabilitation or similar services, your benefits may continue until your participation in the program ends.

An appropriate program must be approved by SSA and includes:

  • The Ticket to Work
  • A Vocational Rehabilitation Agency using an individualized plan for employment (IPE)
  • Support services using an individualized written employment plan
  • A Plan to Achieve Self-Support (PASS)
  • Under Section 301, your benefits may continue until you:
    • Complete your program;
    • Your participation in the program stops;
  • To qualify for Section 301:
    • You must be participating in an appropriate program of vocational rehabilitation or similar services that began before your disability ends under our rules; and
    • You must be participating in an appropriate program of vocational rehabilitation or similar services that began before your disability ends under our rules; and
    • SSA must review the situation and decide that your continued participation in the program will increase the likelihood of your permanent removal from the disability benefit rolls.

For a complete explanation go to SSA Online and view the Redbook section or contact your local LABPS Benefits Planner 1-(855)-886-5123.
