UAW – Proposed Rule Change

The Social Security Administration is proposing to change the rules regarding an Unsuccessful Work Attempt

The Unsuccessful Work Attempt (UWA) allows a beneficiary of social security disability insurance benefits (SSDI) to work after the Trial Work Period (TWP) and not have the work count as Substantial Gainful Activity (SGI) if certain requirements are satisfied. The Social Security Administration’s proposed rule changes would simplify the UWA rules by eliminating the existing requirements of work performed between 3-6 months.
