Working After Filing for Disability Benefits

On Behalf of Christian Ayers
  |     |  

While a Social Security disability case is pending, the opportunity may arise to attempt to return to work activity. Usually, this step should be taken in consultation with treating doctors and your attorney. If the attempt to work last less than three months, it is often possible to have this categorized as an “unsuccessful work attempt” that will not seriously jeopardize an otherwise valid claim for disability benefits. It is also important to keep close tabs on the amount of money earned upon an attempted return to work since Social Security allows some income (currently $1,060.00 gross per month) without a job becoming substantial gainful employment activity.
