Benefits + Work + Money


Think You Can’t Work?
Think Again…

Having a job is an important part of life and these worries about losing your benefits shouldn’t keep you from going to work. There are a lot of possibilities to think about and questions you would probably like to have answered, such as:

  • Would you like to work but are afraid you will lose your Social Security check?
  • Have you stopped working because your check was reduced?
  • Do you think that you might lose your Medicaid benefits if you go to work?
  • Are you afraid that if you try to work, but it doesn’t pan out, you might not be able to receive benefits again?
