Yes, you can return to work while receiving Social Security disability benefits. We have special rules that allow you to work without jeopardizing your benefits. This includes a nine-month Trial Work Period to test your ability to work.

If you get disability benefits, report changes in your condition or work activity by calling 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contacting your local Social Security office.
