A frequent question from claimants is whether they can work and still receive Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits. The answer is, it depends. As long as you earn less than substantial gainful activity (“SGA”), and are unable to work full time, you can receive SSD. I represent a 55 year old former data collector whose SSD application was approved even though he is currently working.
After we arranged for the claimant’s neurologist to perform the consultative examination (“CE”), the State agency wanted more information about the claimant’s part time work. We advised the State agency that the claimant’s employer had made special work accommodations for the claimant, and was only working about 6-7 hours a week. We also confirmed that the claimant was only earning about $600 a month, well below SGA. Shortly thereafter, the SSD application was approved.Previous Next
