Social Security Disability – Can You Work While Your Claim Is Pending?

Yes. However, it is important that you talk to a lawyer before doing so.

So long as your earnings are not at the level of Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which for 2014 is $1,070 per month generally, the work should not bar your claim. If you exceed this amount, the Social Security Administration will find that you are not limited enough to be disabled.

If you try to go back to work but the attempt to do so fails, this fact can even be used to help your lawyer build your case in certain circumstances. Many judges will respect a person’s attempt to support themselves by continuing to try to work. However, it is very important to be honest with the Social Security Administration about trying to work.

It is also possible to try to return to work after you have been approved for Social Security Disability, but this will be discussed further in a later post.

Divorce Without War

If you want to divorce without war, collaborative divorce may be a better alternative. Collaborative divorce takes a different approach than traditional litigation. One of the key features is that the parties control the process. In this, they control the costs and they control the time it takes. If you have children, it can really make a world of difference to preserve whatever relationship you do have with the other parent. If this is something you would like to learn more about, please give us a call at (904)900-4778 or email me at jgreen@thegreenlawfirmjax.com.
