For many, employment provides much more than just an income and if an inability to work arises because of a disability there are ways that Social Security can help.
There are work incentive programs that allow someone to work while receiving disability benefits without jeopardizing your benefits according to Public Affairs Specialist Jack Meyers.
The Social Security Disability program, or SSDI, looks to help those disabled on a month-long basis.
Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, is the other program offered but varies in how it affects benefits.
