What happens if I am able to return to work?
If you can return to work your social security benefits will continue for a trial work period which can be nine consecutive months. This is basically means that you can go back to work and work for approximately nine months earning any kind of dollar amount and still be able to collect your Social Security disability. After that nine-month period Social Security will cease your benefits and you will just continue working. If you stop working within that nine-month period Social Security will allow you to continue getting your benefits.
