SSD Benefits & Working While Disabled

Avoid Pitfalls with Our Reno Social Security Disability Firm

Social security disability benefits are generally meant to be paid out to individuals who can no longer work due to a long-term injury or condition. Like most people, you desire to be gainfully employed, but the idea of working while disabled may be far-off. Many people have found a measure of success with certain types of employment that allow them to be productive without experiencing the impact of their disability.

There are legitimate means of working while disabled and receiving benefits, but the need for strict adherence to these requirements is essential. A knowledgeable Reno Social Security Disability advocate with Disability Action Advocates can help to make sure that your desire to work can be realized without suffering negative consequences from the Social Security Administration.

Know what the policies are before the SSA can question your claim. Contact us at (888) 401-3920 today.

"How Much Can I Work?"

One of the most beneficial methods of working while disabled is to do so through a trial work period that tests your ability to work on a long-term basis. A trial work period should consist of nine working months within a 60-month time frame where the individual makes or earns no more than $850 gross income per month.

For the self-employed, working 80 hours or more is a clear indicator that your disability is not holding you back, and this can result in benefits being discontinued. At the trial work period's conclusion, recipients may continue to receive monthly payments for months where the appropriate base sum was not earned, and this amounts to approximately $1,000 per month.

Social Security Disability Support

There are a lot of rules and regulations concerning individuals who want to work and earn a steady income while continuing to receive social security disability benefits. At Disability Action Advocates, our primary concern is to provide our clients with the best possible insight and information that help you make the educated decisions you need regarding your present and future well-being.

We strongly support your right to be paid for disability in light of your work, and we can help you conform to the correct guidelines for working while disabled.

We're ready to help you navigate these rules and regulations. Contact our office to request a case evaluation with our friendly team today.
