Can I Work While Collecting Social Security Disability? - Investor Times

The short answer to that question is, yes, but only on a limited basis. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are, after all, intended as a lifeline to those who have contributed to Social Security but have become disabled and are not able to continue to perform “substantial gainful activity” or “SGA.” That leaves a little “wiggle room” for you to perform part time work while collecting SSDI benefits, but there are strict limits to how much you can earn without jeopardizing your SSDI benefit. And for those who wish to test their ability to return to work, Social Security provides a method called a “trail work period” during which you have considerable flexibility on earnings, which encourages you to test your ability to return to full time work and no longer need to rely on SSDI. All of this is explained in this Investor Times article.

Also, if you’re unsure about how these basics apply to you, or if you have any questions about your individual situation under Social Security, note that the AMAC Foundation provides a free-to-the-public advisory service to help Americans navigate the complexities of this program. Learn more about it here…
