Can I Work if I’m Receiving Social Security Disability?

“Can I work if I’m receiving Social Security disability benefits?” It’s one of the most common questions we’re asked by our clients. Some people assume that if you qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance, you can’t work at all. However, this isn’t always the case.

The Social Security Administration sets limits for how much you can earn each month while collecting disability benefits. These amounts change from year to year. There is also a trial work period of nine months where you can test your ability to work.

Of course, there are many stipulations that you must be aware of. That’s why it’s important to work with a Social Security disability attorney who can help you work through the red tape and get the benefits you should. Your lawyer can also help if your benefits are reduced or denied. This may happen because the Social Security Administration believes you’re working—and earning—too much.
