Part 2 of 4

How would Maria's benefits be affected by earning more if she was not in BOND?

In 2009, Maria used some of her Trial Work Period (TWP) months. The full-time, pressured position adversely affected her health and she had to stop working. She used up the rest of her TWP months in 2011, and if she was not in BOND her expected earnings would probably mean that her SSDI benefits would stop in 2012.

Future Monthly Income Under Current Policy
Earnings $2,666.67
SSDI Benefit $0
Total monthly income $2,666.67



to see how the BOND benefit offset helps Maria earn more and still keep some of her SSDI benefits.
