It seems most of the incentives are to stay on disability, which is counterintuitive, IMO. I'd think the LTD companies would encourage working even if it only saved them a decade of payments, or so.
I found this to be very true. Also, if you work part time while on SSDI while being below the $750 limit to avoid penalties, it seems they constantly bug you about why you can't go out and get a full time job. Like working 12 hour weeks is just like a 40hr work week. The system sucks
