Although you may receive Social Security disability benefits, you could be required to engage in a trial work period, which tests your ability to work. Your benefits will not stop at this time. If you have questions concerning your claim, then you may need help from a Social Security disability lawyer.
Once you have completed the trial work period, if your disability benefits end because you were able to work at the substantial gainful activity (SGA), your benefits may be automatically reinstated. You won’t even need to fill out a new application.
However, this can only happen if your earnings drop below the SGA level during any month. The reinstatement will extend for 36 consecutive months, after you have completed the trial work period. In addition to your earnings falling under the SGA level for any particular month, it must also be demonstrated that you continue to have a disabling impairment.
An attorney in Indiana who handles Social Security disability claims can help if you have concerns or questions about your ability to engage in a trial work period while disabled. Or if your application for disability benefits was denied, then an attorney can also help.
