Q. Can I work for any period of time and still receive SS disability benefits?

A. Generally, No. You are required to report any earnings or substantial gainful activity to the SS office as a condition of receiving monthly disability checks. 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 payments. You can review all SS programs under www.socialsecurity.gov/disabilityresearch for specific info.
