Are you receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or considering applying for it? Do you have a part-time job causing you to worry that this may affect your claim or lead to you being denied?
You can work part-time while receiving SSDI as long as you’re making under $1,000 a month. However, any penny over that and your disability can be taken away.
What about applying for other forms of income?
It’s possible to receive SSDI along with:
- state benefits through unemployment programs, disability retirement programs and civil service disability compensation
- employer insurance policies
- private pension or insurance policies
- workers’ compensation
- Veterans benefits
However, retirement benefits such as regular Social Security will cancel out any SSDI benefits you receive. The amount from regular Social Security will be the same, or higher, than SSDI.
It’s easy to see that applying for SSDI can be a very difficult task involving many details and situations.
If you apply for SSDI and have been denied, just remember that it’s very common. Up to 70% of initial claims are denied nationwide. This means that more than half of claims get turned down each day!
