What happens to disability benefits if I want to go back to work?

Not everyone who qualifies for and receives Social Security disability benefits will be able to go back to working for earned income. In fact, disability benefits exist in order to help men and women who have paid into the system to stay financially on their feet when disabling injuries and illnesses prevent them from holding down jobs. However, in some situations North Carolina residents who have received disability benefits may find that they want to go back to having their own careers.

Through the Social Security Administration's Ticket to Work program, some people may be able to do just that. A person who qualifies for the Ticket to Work program may be able to retain certain benefits, such as their monthly payments and their access to Medicare or Medicaid, as they seek employment and even start new jobs. The idea behind the program is that a person who is disabled is allowed to try out working to see if it is something they can do before they are required to give up the help they have attained through their disability benefits.

A person who wishes to work but who has started to receive disability benefits should talk with their trusted disability benefits attorney about their plans to start working. If a person does not utilize one of the paths to work stipulated by the Social Security Administration they may see their benefits cut off without continuing support.

The Ticket to Work program is a good option for individuals who have a desire to be employed. It opens the door to working for many men and women who desire to achieve the goal of earning their own income from their own employment.
