Can I Work and Still Receive Benefits?

New Jersey Social Security Disability Lawyer

Many people who apply for Social Security Disability benefits wonder if they are eligible for benefits while they are still working. If you are located anywhere in the state of New Jersey and need answers to this issue, we urge you to contact our offices to set up a time when you can discuss your specific situation with our New Jersey Social Security Disability attorney. Because we have a successful track record of helping our clients secure the benefits they need from the Social Security Administration (SSA), we are well-versed in all aspects of the benefits claim process and its various applications and regulations. Our attorney can review your case, answer your questions, and address your concerns on this or any other matter concerning disability benefits.

In general, you may work and receive Social Security Disability benefit payments if your earnings are less than a specific amount set by the SSA and you are working part-time

Another program under the SSA regarding employment involves a work incentive which permits you to keep your disability benefits during a trial work program. This trial work program allows you to test your ability to work while you receive full benefits, no matter how much you earn. The program takes place over a rolling 60-month time period allowing you to work for 9 months, whether consecutive or not, in which you earn more than $720 per month. Once the trial work period is complete, you will not be able to receive benefits during months where you earn a substantial income, which is currently set at $1,000. You can receive benefits if you are still disabled in the 36 months following the end of the trial period if you do not make what is considered to be substantial income.

To find out more about working while receiving benefits, it is best to consult with the New Jersey Social Security Disability lawyer at our firm about the specifics of your situation.
