I think that is the normal procedure.

Once someone is out of the workforce for an extended period of time, it becomes more unlikely that they will be able to return to work (unless there is a major medical advancement, etc).  Sometimes, an individual may be able to find a job with the Ticket to Work program that was not able to get employment on their own due to retraining opportunities, etc.
Age at Application: 26 age of onset (but I did not apply until 28)
Date Applied: August 2011
First Approval/Denial Date: November 2011
Additional Info: I was fortunate to be approved on my initial application due to extensive medical records (12+ doctors) & documentation of unsuccessful work attempts even with significant accommodations

The Notice of Decision should explain when S.S.D.thinks a medical improvement could be possible.They send out a form,long or short,at 18 months ,3,or 5 to 7 years. I,m just guessing,at your age,they see M.I. early.Nothing to fret about,James.Might be why you received"Ticket to Work"early.Mine arrived a year later from disabled.I don,t know,that also could be a new procedure,S.S.D. implemented,to send those out early.

 My ticket to work paperwork came two weeks after my SSDI approval/deposit.
I received automated phone calls offering the ticket to work program once each year for two years. Now all is quiet.
