On Behalf of | Sep 25, 2015 | Social Security Disability

Under the Title II social security disability program for people who have worked and paid into the social security system, there are provisions for a trial work period after approval of benefits in which you can work for nine months and still receive your SSD check. There is also a grace provision for benefits for the first month of work activity and an additional two months, in effect enabling you to receive full benefits for 12 months after a return to regular employment. It is essential that the local social security office be notified when you are engaging in a trial work activity to ensure that you receive the maximum amount to which you are eligible.
