Yes and no. Your Ticket cannot be assigned to DARS (or any state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency) and to Virginia Career Works – Northern under the Ticket to Work program at the same time. If you have an open case with DARS your Ticket may already be assigned to DARS and therefore we would be unable to assist you with Ticket to Work specific services.
However, if DARS helps you get a job and your case is closed you can request your Ticket to be transferred to Virginia Career Works – Northern for continued services upon exit. These services can assist you with ongoing employment needs and benefits counseling.
Please note that all Virginia Career Works – Northern center resources and programs (contingent on program specific eligibility) remain available to you while working with DARS.
