If you are considering applying for Social Security Disabiltiy Benefits (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you may know that it can be a lengthy and challenging process. MSWorks can help individuals with questions about the process or inform them on whom to contact.
If you are already receiving benefits but are afraid of losing them if you begin working and receiving an income, you should know about the incentives to work that exist within the Social Security program. The incentives are often seen as complicated and difficult to understand, and it is not uncommon for people with disabilities to underuse them.
If you have questions about work incentives, how much money an individual can earn and still receive benefits or other general questions, please contact us.
