Q. Can I Work for any Period of Time and Still Receive Social Security Disability Benefits?
A. Generally, No. You are required to report any earnings or substantial gainful activity to the Social Security Administration as a condition of receiving monthly disability income. Congress has recognized the need for work incentives and has created several programs to encourage attempts to return to work without automatic loss of disability compensation.
