Am I Allowed to Work While I Am Receiving Social Security Disability Benefits?
The Social Security Administration has many rules regarding work performed during a period of disability. Generally, if you return to work after you became disabled, you can make any amount of money for up to nine months. After nine months of work, your income must be below certain threshold levels, or else your benefits may be reduced or eliminated.
Social Security has a program called Ticket to Work where people receiving SSDI or SSI benefits can get free job training and other services that make it easier to return to work.
