Don't let disability myths get in your way

There are many myths about disability benefits and being able to work while receiving benefits. Some believe there's no chance for you to work while on benefits, while others believe it's possible to collect benefits and work. The reality is that you can work as long as it is within the guidelines of the Social Security Administration (SSA).

The SSA regularly checks on your condition to make sure you still qualify for benefits. As long as you do, you may want to consider working up to the allowed amount. In 2018, you can earn up to $1,180 per month in addition to your disability paycheck before you will see a reduction in your benefits. If, at any time, you lose your Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits because you are earning too much, you will still retain Medicare for up to 93 months and Medicaid will also continue. Even after you're unable to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you may still qualify for Medicaid based on your case.

If you do decide to work and lose your benefits, don't think you have to start over again if you find you're unable to work due to your disability in the future. You won't need to reapply as long as your benefits ended within the last five years and you still have the original, approved medical condition.

Our website has information about applying for and getting approved for SSD benefits. It's not always easy, but with the right help, you can have a better chance of getting your application approved the first time you apply.
