Social Security and Getting Back To Work
Posted in: Work Incentives Program on September 26th, 2012

It may seem odd to think of those receiving Social Security Disability Insurance would be worried about getting back to work. Although it is true that recipients of disability insurance are qualified for benefits because they are deemed ineligible to work, there may come a time that they do become able to work again. In order to avoid having recipients worry about losing their benefits right away, the Social Security Administration has set up two programs to help make the transition back into the workforce easier.

Encouraging Independence

The SSA has created a Work Incentives Program that allows disability recipients the chance to work while still obtaining benefits. The program provides continued cash benefits for up to nine months during the trial work period, regardless of how much income is earned. Medicare benefits are also continued for up 93 months after the successful completion of the trial work period. The Work Incentives Program also provides vocational training and educational; as well as transportation assistance related to the recipients job as long as they are working.

The Ticket To Work Program provides resources for those looking to enter, or reenter the workforce while receiving benefits. The program offers resources like vocational training, education, career counseling and job placement services. The goal is to help beneficiaries become more independent without the worry of losing their cash benefits while they try their hand at working.
