The #SocialSecurityDisability application process is not quick, and many clients experience difficulty making financial ends meet in the meantime. When you file for #SocialSecurityDisabilityBenefits, you are trying to prove to the #SocialSecurityAdministration you are unable to work enough to pay for basic living expenses. Unfortunately this means any working may hurt the case.
While often times claimants filing for benefits are forced to work, making over what the #SocialSecurityAdministration considers substantial may result in a technical denial of the case ($1,130 for 2016; $1,170 for 2017). In difficult financial situations, in the alternative, I recommend clients attend vocational rehabilitation through their local #DepartmentOfWorkforceServices (DWS). DWS offers many programs, such as special job training for accommodated job placements, referrals and payment for some medical treatment, cash assistance, medicaid health insurance, housing assistance, and food stamps. These are great programs which help many people with basic living necessities.
