Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - Return To Work

What If An Attempted Return To Work Is Not Successful?

« Previous


If your medical condition prevents you from continuing to work, notify Social Security immediately.

We recommend that you go to the Social Security office personally. Take with you a letter from your doctor explaining exactly what symptom or condition is preventing you from doing what part of your job. Let your doctor know that Social Security may contact him or her for additional medical information.

As always, make sure you get a receipt confirming your reporting and receipt of your letter. If finances are especially tight, you may ask for an Advance Payment on your SSI benefits. Keep in mind, however, such payments seem to be more the exception than the rule.

Don't wait until you are penniless to report that you stopped working.
