The Right To Work While Pursuing Social Security Disability Benefits

You can work and still receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), but it is wise to consult an experienced attorney who can advise you on the best way to make your work comply with your benefit payments. At Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo, we encourage our clients to seek job opportunities and help them to do so if it is plausible considering their disability, injury or illness.

Disability benefits are not a gold mine. Living high on the hog is not possible on benefits. Supplementing your benefit payments with earned income from a part-time job is a good option for many clients. If you receive SSDI or SSI payments in your name, you are allowed to work no more than 20 hours weekly and earn no more than $1,000 gross each month. Household income levels affect only SSI payments.

Email us or call us at 877-794-2396 to find out more about how you can supplement your benefit payments with part-time work income. Schedule a free initial consultation with one of our knowledgeable and helpful attorneys in your area.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, we advise, counsel and represent clients from 11 offices throughout Pennsylvania.
