If you have filed for Social Security Disability, and then find you can return to work full time you may still be able to get Social Security benefits.

You have to be off work for at least one year.

This is called a closed period.

It means you can be paid for the time period you were unable to work.

Some Judges seem to be more willing to give a person Social Security Disability for a closed period than for the remainder of your life.

Getting Social Security Disability for a closed period does not stop you from getting Disability benefits in the future if you have to stop working again.
