Are you a disabled and receiving Social Security benefits in New York? Have you ever wondered if you would still be eligible to receive those benefits if you returned to work?

Fortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has recognized that many disabled people receiving benefits want to return to work. Therefore, they have developed programs to allow people to do so.

The SSA’s website highlights three work incentives including a trial work period. This allows you to return to the workplace for a period of nine months to determine if you can work before your benefits run out.

They also offer an extended period of eligibility. This allows you to earn benefits during a three-year period if your earrings are not “substantial” enough to make ends meet.

Lastly, they offer an expedited reinstatement. If you return to work, and after five years, determine that you can no longer work, you can reapply without having to file a new disability application.
