Working While Disabled

The U.S. Social Security Administration has some useful information for those who wish to learn about working while being disabled. Here are some snippets from that website:
If you are getting disability benefits, we have good news for you. Social Security’s work incentives and Ticket to Work programs can help you if you are interested in working.

Special rules make it possible for people receiving Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) to work and still receive monthly payments.

And, if you cannot continue working because of your medical condition, your benefits can start again—you may not have to file a new application.

Work incentives include:

* Continued cash benefits for a time while you work;
* Continued Medicare or Medicaid while you work; and
* Help with education, training and rehabilitation to start
a new line of work.
