A question a claimant often asks of an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer is how much money can be earned each month while continuing to receive benefits.
A person receiving benefits is allowed to make what is known as the “substantial gainful activity” total. For the year 2010, that was $1,000 each month in gross earnings. That is not what the person will take home each month.
In order to maintain your benefits, an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer will advise you to maintain an income that is lower than what the SSA refers to as the “trial work period services” total. In 2010, that was $720 each month. If you surpass this amount, you will exhaust your three months to try going back to work to see if you’re capable. If you retain them, you can still use them later.
If you have questions about the minimum amount of money you can earn and still receive benefits, an Ocala Social Security disability lawyer can help. Call the CJ Henry Law Firm, PLLC at 352-304-5300 to discuss your case today.
