Documenting Work Activity After You File a Disability Benefits Claim

During all phases of the application process for Social Security Disability benefits, the burden is on the claimant to prove disability.

Burden of Proof

This includes not only providing medical evidence you have been diagnosed with disabling impairments, but also documenting any work activity you perform while waiting for the Social Security Administration to process your claim.


Minimal Work

Social Security allows you to perform minimal work while your claim is pending. It is the claimant’s responsibility to show any work does not exceed limits set by Social Security. You can substantiate this by providing pay stubs and W2 forms verifying you are not working too much.
