Yes. Social Security allows for some flexibility in making minimal earnings while being on disability. Currently, an individual who is on disability could work and earn a maximum of $1,200 per month. The administration considers it to be substantial work if this amount is exceeded.
A person is allowed nine (9) months of earnings or about $1,200 (Work Incentives Program) without any effect on their monthly benefit. However, if the nine months of work are exceeded, one’s entitlement to disability is suspended, and in some cases, stopped completely.
