BOND helps Social Security disability beneficiaries to earn more and keep more of their benefits. Under current SSDI rules, beneficiaries in the following situations who are not in BOND would not be paid any SSDI while working over the substantial gainful amount after completing their Trial Work Period and grace months. These examples for 2012 demonstrate how BOND works to pay SSDI benefits when their earnings increase.
Each of these people is earning enough from their work so that BOND is beneficial to them. Each situation has three parts, explaining:
- The person's earnings and SSDI situation.
- How the person would lose benefits if earnings increased, if not in BOND under the current policy.
- How BOND can help each person earn and keep more of his or her benefits.
