About SS Disability and Returning to Work - Forbes

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is a lifeline extended to American workers who become disabled and, thus, are unable to earn at their chosen profession. Criteria for SSDI eligibility are strict, including that the disability must be near total and expected to last for at least one year. But for the truly disabled, SSDI is an important financial asset meant to sustain a disabled worker until they are no longer disabled or reach their normal SS full retirement age. There are over 7 million people now collecting SSDI, some of whom incurred a disability from which they are trying to recover, but are afraid that they may lose their SSDI benefits if they even try to return to work.

For those on SSDI who wish to test their ability to return to work, or for those who wish to consider changing to a profession which better aligns with their disability, Social Security provides a way. It’s called the Ticket to Work (TTW) program, which allows someone collecting SSDI benefits to transition back into the workforce at their chosen profession, or to explore other professions which better fit their restricted ability. All you need to know about Social Security’s Ticket to Work program is explained in this Forbes article by Diane Winiarski.
