People on Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) are provided incentives to return to work, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Under the Social Security rules, you can work while maintaining SSDI benefits by:

(1) Earning less than $720 a month.

(2) Undertaking a trial work period for at least nine months in a consecutive 60-month period and earn a least $720 per month.

(3) Participating in extended eligibility period by working for 36 months if your earnings are not “substantial” or $1010 or more.

Even after SSDI benefits stop, you still have five years to have your benefits reinstated if you stop working without having to reapply.

There is also the Ticket to Work program, offered by the Social Security Administration, which provides free job related employment supports such as vocational rehabilitation, training, and job referrals.
