At some point after receiving disability benefits (SSDI or SSI), you may want to try to return to work, but you don't want to lose your cash benefits or your Medicare or Medicaid eligibility. Both SSDI and SSI offer various work incentive programs that allow you to try to go back to work. These programs include continuing cash benefits while you work, continuing Medicare or Medicaid coverage, vocational training, and reimbursement of expenses for equipment or modifications to accomodate your disability.
