What If I Want to Try To Return To Work And Am Receiving Income From SSDI?
After you start receiving disability benefits, you may want to try working again. Social Security encourages an attempt to return to work.
There are special rules called "work incentives" that can help you keep your cash benefits and Medicare while you test your ability to work. For more information, see TWWIIA.
There are also rules about a Trial Work Period that allows you to receive your full Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefit without reduction, and Medicare, no matter how large your income. To learn more, see Trial Work Period and Extended Period of Eligibility.
