If you return to work while receiving Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits, be sure to report the work to your local SSA office. Doing this is very important.
Work incentives are special rules to help people return to work when receiving disability benefits through either of these programs. Available work incentives vary depending on whether disability benefits are through Social Security or SSI.
General information detailing work incentives is here on the Social Security website. This is a good place to start learning about work incentives for either program.
Just updated for 2016 and available online, the Red Book is a general reference publication about work incentives. The Redbook can be a self-help guide but it is primarily written to provide a working knowledge of work incentives for educators, advocates, rehabilitation professionals, and counselors who serve persons with disabilities.
