Re: Social Security Disability Benefits

So Rob, did they say that your benefits are reduced if you earn more than the allowed $1100? I thought it just made a portion of the benefits taxable. They do have a "return to work" (can't remember exactly what they called it) program where if you try to go back to work, benefits cease bu...

Re: I did a bad thing Perhaps

Good for you. I think we all need to be aware of the dollars spent (and wasted), whether we sign the check or not.

Re: Social Security Disability Benefits

I appreciate what y'all are saying, it's just that I keep having this recurring thought that this forum really isn't the place for political rants.

Re: Social Security Disability Benefits

You can make up to around $1100/mo without it affecting your benefits. After that a portion becomes taxable, but it doesn't necessarily affect your eligibility. However, if you are working (and therefore earning), you may have a harder time justifying that you are disabled when you apply. The compas...

Frenchie, didn't they give you something for break-through pain? For me, I have oxycontin for continuous pain management and oxycodone for break through. (Fortunately not having to take it for now.)
