Should You Work?

if you have Social Security Disability Benefits?

You may have heard that people who can work, even a little, cannot qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. That, fortunately, is not true. Many disabled people are able to work a few hours a week at jobs they are able to handle despite the disability. You can make a few hundred dollars a month and still qualify for Social Security Disability benefits.

The advice our Social Security Disability advocates give claimants is to work if you’re able to. You need the money and there’s a good feeling about providing at least some of your own income even though you aren’t able to be as productive as you once were.

The Social Security Administration does put a limit on how much you can earn and still qualify for disability benefits.
