Can a person return to work and still collect benefits?

There are many residents of Charlotte who have had to apply for Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits are available to help people who are no longer able to work. They can help a person continue to provide for their family but, if a person wants to return to work, will they lose these benefits?

Social Security Disability and Acceptable Medical Sources

Charlotte area residents who are living with a serious illness or injury may want to investigate whether they are eligible for Social Security Disability (SSD). SSD is a program to help those who are no longer able to work because of a serious illness. In order for a person to qualify for SSD they must have a medical diagnosis from an approved medical source. Not every provider is an approved medical source for diagnosing a disability.

New proposal could affect SSD benefits for millions

The process for obtaining Social Security benefits is often an arduous one, and some people in Charlotte may find it takes years before they are finally approved. While approval for benefits is certainly a victory, a proposal published in the Federal Register in November has the potential to affect hundreds of thousands of SSD benefit recipients in our nation who may face the risk of losing their benefits.

Some veterans can get expedited service for disability benefits

Veterans of the U.S. military have a number of services available to them through Veterans Affairs, but these are not necessarily exclusive. Veterans who are unable to work because of illness or injury should be aware they may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. In fact, their status as veterans qualifies them for expedited service in seeking the benefits.

Returning to work after receiving disability benefits

Social Security Disability benefits are meant to provide income for people who are not able to earn a living due to injury, illness or other condition. However, many people who receive the benefits eventually find they wish to return to work.

Can my family collect benefits based on my record?

Sometimes a disabled person must continue to provide for their family members. Fortunately, Social Security Disability can provide benefits for certain members of your family based on your record. These include your spouse, your divorced spouse, your children, a disabled child, and any adult child who was disabled before they reached age 22.
