Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability in Jackson & Memphis

Understand Social Security Work Incentives in Tennessee

Working when you are disabled is tough and in many circumstances, it is downright impossible. That is why so many people apply for Social Security disability insurance or supplemental security income. You know that, no matter what you do, you are not able to work at the job you used to have and you are not able to perform another job.

In some instances, though, the financial situation is becoming unbearable. You are out of options from all angles and you need to get some money in the door. Social Security work incentives are designed to accommodate this situation for you. You should know that when you are claiming disability and still trying to work, you may complicate your case quite a bit, but the right to work and claim benefits does exist.

Please contact our offices to speak with a disability attorney in Jackson or the metro Memphis area about how work incentives may impact your application.
