Maximus wins Social Security program support deal

Maximus Inc. has won a pair of contracts from the Social Security Administration to administer different aspects of the agency's Ticket-to-Work program.

The TTW program provides Social Security disability beneficiaries with a variety of choices for receiving employment services, and increases incentives to providers to serve beneficiaries who want to work.

On the first contract, Maximus will serve as the operations support manager for the ticket program under a contract worth $49.2 million over five years.

The company will administer a toll-free call center and e-mail response to answer questions from program beneficiaries and to make appropriate referrals. In addition, the company will administer and support the assignment of program tickets and the payment processing for the program's employment networks.

On the second contract, Maximus will manage the TTW Data Operations Center. The one-year contract is worth $1.8 million, and includes options for two years that could bring the value to $5.5 million. The company will provide data center and system support and coordinate the program among various participants.

The legislation that authorizes the TTW program seeks to address a number of obstacles that beneficiaries encounter in obtaining jobs and continuing to work by expanding the availability of health care services and coverage available to them.

Maximus, based in Reston, Va., has more than 5,100 employees and annual sales of $603.8 million.
