In most cases, a recipient of Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits can have some gainful employment without being disqualified from continuing to receive SSD. While it is true that you cannot work on a full-time basis (defined as eight hours a day, five days a week, 50 weeks a year or some similar schedule), you can work part-time, making less than $940 a month (for 2008), and still qualify for disability benefits.
Schedule a consultation with an experienced SSD lawyer to discuss your questions and concerns related to Social Security Disability. We can even assist you if your application for SSD has been denied.
Granted, there are sometimes gray areas or “fuzzy” circumstances that may require a judge’s opinion to clarify when it comes to part-time work and Social Security Disability. SSD recipients may wish to do volunteer work — and might do the same work for pay, but cannot reliably agree to a determined schedule of work because of an unstable medical condition. Sometimes the only way to get clarification in questionable work-related issues is to take the question before a judge. A Social Security Disability attorney with experience presenting a client’s case before judges in administrative hearings through federal court is a valuable advocate for an SSD recipient.
