Can I Work and Still Get Social Security Disability Benefits?
POSTED BY Jan Dils . September 30, 2019
The process of making sure you receive the Social Security disability benefits you deserve may seem complicated. In fact, navigating that process is what our specialists are here to do.
What if you are receiving disability benefits and you want to return to work? Will your benefits be impacted?
The short answer is, maybe. There are special rules that the Social Security Administration has that can help you start working again without jeopardizing your initial benefits. These rules make it possible for people who are receiving Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to work and still get their monthly payments.
Social Security also has a Ticket to Work program that can benefit those hoping to return to work. Under this program, you may receive free vocational rehabilitation, training, job referrals, and other support.

While it may be possible to work and continue receiving benefits, you’ll want to make sure you meet all the necessary conditions before moving forward with a new job.
