A Timely Progress Review (TPR) is Social Security’s way to track the progress of a beneficiary who is receiving services under the Ticket to Work program. Social Security expects beneficiaries to make progress towards self-supporting employment while their Tickets are in the “Assigned” or “In-Use SVR” statuses. The TPR is based on Timely Progress Guidelines established in the Ticket program regulations.
Under the regulations, Social Security is required to conduct a review at the end of every 12-month period of Ticket assignment to determine if beneficiaries are making the expected progress toward self-supporting employment. The first 12-month period begins with the Ticket assignment/in-use month. Any month that a Ticket is not assigned or is in inactive status is not counted as part of the 12-month review period.
