Work Incentives

What does Work Incentives mean?

Work incentives are programs the SSA has created to allow people with disabilities who are receiving SSA retirement, SSDI or SSI to work and continue to receive monthly payment, Medicare or Medicaid. Each program has very specific rules, and some programs allow the work attempt for a limited amount of time. Talk to the SSA prior to attempting any type of work. Failure to understand the program could result in an overpayment which must be paid back to the SSA.

Common work incentives include subsidies, expedited reinstatement, impairment related work expenses, trial work period, extended period of eligibility, continuation of Medicare coverage, Medicare for people with disabilities who work, protection for medical continuing disability reviews, plan to achieve self-support, blind work expenses, and continued Medicaid eligibility.
