Q-Trial Work Period-what is it?
A-This is a Social Security term that allows a disability recipient to try to return to work and still continue to receive monthly Social Security Disability Benefits.
You will not be required to repay the Social Security Administration even if you are working and earning over $1,000 per month, UNLESS you work into your 9th month consecutively. Then your benefits will cease because the SSA considers you are no longer disabled/eligible for disability benefits. I try to encourage my clients to try to work. There is greater dignity in working rather than receiving a subsidy. However, if you cannot do so regularly, then you have lost nothing by trying.
