How much extra income a month can I earn if I try and work part-time while drawing disability?

Q) How much extra income a month can I earn if I try and work part-time while drawing disability?

A) “Social Security has special rules called work incentives that allow you to test your ability to work and still receive monthly”

According to Social Security Administration Social Security pays benefits to people who cannot work because they have a medical condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death. Federal law requires this very strict definition of disability. While some programs give money to people with partial disability or short-term disability, Social Security does not.




After you start receiving Social Security disability benefits, you may want to try working again. Social Security has special rules called work incentives that allow you to test your ability to work and still receive monthly Social Security disability benefits. You also can get help with education, rehabilitation and training you need in order to work.

If you do take a job or become self-employed, it is important that you tell us about it right away. We need to know when you start or stop work; and if there are any changes in your job duties, hours of work or rate of pay. You can call us toll-free at 1-800-772-1213. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you may call our TTY number, 1-800-325-0778. http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN-05-10029.pdf
