RE: Work and Disability benefitsA person receiving disability is doing so because they are suppose to be unable to work. If someone returns to work, they will end up having their case re-evaluated and benefits could (and should) stop.Basically, when on disability, a person receives a nine month "trial work period" when they can work and make whatever they want. When the 9 months are up, if that person is working and making more than $700 per month, benefits will stop regardless of the disability.If you only work for 5 months, you do not get another 9 full months when you "try again" a year later. You get 9 month, period. So, if you work for 8 months, stop for 3 years, and then go back to work your benefits could be ceased after 3 or less months on a new job.You can try to return to work and that is what the TWP is for. However, if you can work in spite of your disability maybe you shouldn't be getting disability. Rules are very strict about work activity and it's very easy to get overpaid especially if you don't report the work activity timely. The TWP is trickly as well.
