You Can Go Back to Work Without Losing Benefits
Even after you start receiving disability benefits, the SSA allows you to return to work. There are special rules that help people keep their benefits and Medicare coverage while testing the ability to work. These rules are called “work incentives” or “employment support” programs.
You Can Get Free Help with Employment Training
The Ticket to Work program helps disability beneficiaries receive free training and other services they need to get back to work. Most beneficiaries receive a “ticket” that they can take to the provider of their choice who can offer the kind of services they need.
