To request services contact your local DOR office. If you are receiving Social Security Administration (SSA) benefits or if you have a valid "Ticket to Work," you are presumed to be eligible for DOR services.

If you are found eligible for DOR services, you will receive a priority score, called a Significance of Disability (SOD) score that will be used in the Order of Selection process. The law requires that DOR use this process when there is not enough money to serve all applicants. This ensures that DOR first serves those with the most significant disabilities.

If you have applied for services, gone through the assessment process, are found eligible for services, and are placed in a priority category being served, an Individualized Plan for Employment, (IPE) will be developed. The IPE is your written plan listing your job objectives and the DOR services you will receive in order to find and maintain employment.
