Can I Earn Income While Waiting For A Disputed SSDI Claim?

Unfortunately for most people, a great deal of time can pass — sometimes more than a year — between first applying for Social Security Disability benefits and actually receiving them. Since your disability prevents you from being able to earn an income, this can cause a great deal of financial hardship.

Located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, we serve clients throughout the region. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation and discuss your SSD claim.

Knowledgeable About All Sources Of Benefits

Depending on your situation, you may be eligible for different types of benefits while you wait to secure your SSD benefits. These could include workers' compensation benefits, veterans' benefits, unemployment benefits, spousal income and short-term disability benefits.

Before accepting any of these benefits, discuss your disability claim with an experienced lawyer. We understand the complex issues involved with how different benefits may affect your SSD claim.

Depending on the other benefits you receive, you may be eligible for less SSD benefits. You could even accidentally disqualify your claim depending on other income that you accept. Our lawyers have been helping injured workers for more than 25 years. We will get a full understanding of your unique situation and help you secure the benefits that best protect your financial interests.
