Can I Collect Social Security Disability Benefits And Work?
The Social Security Administration (SSA) has special rules that allow you to test you ability to return to work while you’re still receiving monthly Social Security Disability benefits.
The Social Security Administration has written a publication “Working While Disabled – How We Can Help” that you can order at www.socialsecurity.gov/work. Don’t jeopardize your rights to Social Security Disability benefits without understanding the work incentive rules!
The Social Security Administration doesn’t always make it easy for those who are disabled to get the Social Security disability benefits they receive. Contact Social Security Disability attorney, Nancy Cavey, at 727-894-3188, if your application for Social Security Disability benefits has been denied. Don’t delay! Call today!
DO I HAVE TO REPORT MY WORK ACTIVITY IF I’M RECEIVING SOCIAL SECURITY DISABILITY BENEFITS?
If you are collecting Social Security Disability benefits and take a job you need to let Social Security know:
– When you started or stopped work; and
– If there is a change in your job duties, hours, work, or rate of pay.
You may still qualify for Social Security Disability benefits so long as you’re not making than $1,040 per month in the calendar year 2014.
You should visit your local office to report your current work activity and get a receipt from a Social Security representative documenting that you reported your work activity.
That work report receipt may be crucial if, later, the Social Security Administration contends that you’ve been overpaid Social Security disability benefits as a result of your work activity. If you have a question about this process, Tampa Social Security Disability attorney Nancy Cavey can answer them! Give us a call at 727-894-3188 to get more information.
