If you are fortunate enough to be able to attempt to return to working after becoming disabled you need to make sure you are aware of the income limits set by the Social Security Administration (SSA).

Each case is unique, so the matter should be discussed with your New York disability attorney first before making any decisions. With disability benefits, you can attempt a trial work period without penalty or income limits, but once that is over you need to evaluate your situation.

The extended period of eligibility for Social Security disability benefits has a $1,000 monthly income limit. If you exceed this, you may find a reduction in your benefits. When any changes are made to your Social Security disability benefit amount, you should make sure your New York disability attorney is made aware. There are chances you can fight for benefit increases.

Because there are so many factors that go into determining benefit reductions, income limits, and earning thresholds, it can get quite frustrating without the help of a lawyer. One key point in avoiding your income limit is to determine all eligible deductions. Deductions are made for work-related expenses that are made necessary by your disability, such as medications, assistive devices, and special transportation needs.
