Definition - What does Work Incentives mean?
Work incentives refer to the special rules enacted by the U.S. Social Security Administration (SSA) which allows people with disabilities who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability benefits to continue receiving their monthly payments and Medicaid or Medicare from SSA even when they start working. Although the rules for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and the Supplemental Security Income Program (SSI) are different, the purpose of the rules remains the same.
