Can you be fired while on disability?
As far as I know, when you are on disability your are to return to your employer with either the same or similar position. They can give away your position, but you are allowed back onto the job with a similar or same position. For example, you stock shelves in a store in Dept A. making $$ an hour. You go on disability and they put another person in your spot. When you return to work after being on disability your employer is obligated to have you stock shelves as before at $$ per hour, but it may be in a Dept B.
I hope that makes sense. I would fill out the FMLA form because that protects you.

Answer . \nThe Social Security definition of disability is strict, but you neednt be totally incapacitated to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)… benefits.\n. \n. \nOf course benefits arent payable to people who work and earn more than a certain amount. The Social Security Administration (SSA) calls this maximum substantial gainful activity or SGA.\n. \n. \nBut if a disabled person earns less than the SGA figure, he or she may qualify for SSDI benefits though working. This means he or she may work while applying, or keep receiving benefits if already qualified.\n. \n. \nEarnings averaging over $830 monthly in 2005 are SGA. (The figure is $860 a month in 2006.)\n. \n. \nDont stop reading if you earn more than this amount. Receiving a monthly paycheck of more than $830 may not mean SSA will count all your income as earnings.\n. \n. \nCountable earnings dont include things like:\n. \no sick leave,\n. \no profit sharing,\n. \no private disability insurance benefits,\n. \no a spouses earnings, or\n. \no wages paid you that exceed the actual value of services you perform.\n. \n. \nExtra in-kind support you receive (like ongoing help from other workers) may also reduce your countable earnings. SSA calls this extra pay and support, "subsidy."\n. \n. \nSSA also deducts impairment related work expenses or "IRWE" when figuring countable earnings. IRWE includes impairment-related items and services you must have in order to work.\n. \n. \nIn short, although your paycheck may be more than $830 a month, your countable earnings may be less and not disqualify you from SSDI benefits. To learn more about the effect of income and expenses on SSDI benefits, see SSAs 2005 Red Book.\n. \n. \nTo follow developments in Social Security disability, visit: www.disabilityfacts.com
Collecting unemployment while on disability depends on the stateand the laws. However, in most states, you cannot collect both.
If you have any other sources of worldwide income and (tax exempt interest and exempt dividends) then it is possible for some of your SSB to become taxable income on your inco…me tax return and then you would be required to file an income tax return. Paying taxes on your benefits Some people who get Social Security have to pay taxes on their benefits. About one-third of our current beneficiaries pay taxes on their benefits. You will be affected only if you have substantial income in addition to your Social Security benefits. . If you file a federal tax return as an "individual" and your income is more than $25,000, you have to pay taxes. . If you file a joint return, you may have to pay taxes if you and your spouse have a combined income that is more than $32,000. . If you are married and file a separate return, you will probably pay taxes on your benefits.

If it is a general unwired smoke alarm you can simply take the batteries out and uninstall it from your ceiling easily. if it is a wired smoke alarm (with a company, with t…his the company typically will automatically alert Emergency Services when the alarm is activated), it will usually have a panel somewhere in the house. Usually there is a way to deactivate it directly from the panel (or via other methods such as a remote that came with the panel). However, varying by the company, some may call you when it activates. If they do, they can deactivate it for you over the phone. If you want to remove it completely, just call the company to cancel the service.
The general description is that your can't be engaged in "Substantial Gainful Activity" which for 2012 is $720 per month. Never try to be clever about "month" and split a larg…e paycheck into two months, the limit can be applied to any 30 day period. If self-employed then there is an additional limit of 80 hours of work per month, whether or not you made any money. If your earnings exceed $720/month and you are eligible for a trial work period of up to 9 months you can earn more and still get SSID benefits $1,010 in any month for most, $1,690 if blind. A trial work period is limited to a total of 9 months in a 60 month period. If you had a trial work period in 1992 or earlier you may need to ask SSA to confirm your eligibility. Payments to volunteers in certain programs, and only those programs, are excluded from (not counted towards) the limits; Volunteers in Service to America, University Year for ACTION, Special Volunteer Programs, Retired Senior Volunteer Program, Foster Grandparent Program, Service Corps of Retired Executives, and Active Corps of Executives. Pay in connection with a government subsidized back-to-work or job training program is counted against the limit, but only the part of the pay that exceeds the government subsidy is counted against the limit. You should check the details before you start the job to avoid being surprised later. Work and payments in connection with consulting services provided under the Federal Advisory Committee Act are also excluded from the limits, but only if you are a member or consultant of an advisory committee specifically authorized by statute, or by the President, or determined as a matter of formal record by the head of a federal government agency, and you weren't required to do it as part of some other job. For more details see the SSA web site and Federal Regulation 404.1574. "Evaluation guides if you are an employee." which doesn't seem to have been updated since 2000 and doesn't have the explicit the hour limits for the self-employed found in the more recent SSA regulations.

There are two law that provide job security during your leave for disability: the FMLA provides twelve weeks of unpaid leave for your disability. NJ has a separate law, but it… provides leave for you to care for a sick family member - not your own disability. Your employer does not have to hold your job open if FMLA does not apply, or if your leave extends beyond 12 weeks.
Yes. Most people would take it as a sign that the employer actually cares about their employee.
The answer depends upon the size of your employer, the state you work in, and the length of your disability. The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides job protection for… up to 12 weeks for your own disability. It applies to employers with more than 50 employees. Ten states have family leave laws which supplement the federal act. If you work in one of these ten states then you might have additional job protection rights.
no i believe not because they believe you are a hundred percent or able to work so you stop getting your funding
Certainly, an employer can terminate you at any time for any reason not prohibited by law. You can't be fired simply for having a disability. You CAN be fired for becoming una…ble to perform even one essential job function.
This would depend upon several factors which are not specified in the question: 1. What was the reason for the termination? A different result may inure if the firing were du…e to egregious actions by the employee, rather than, for example, a reduction in workforce; 2. When did the disabiling event occur relative to the termination of employment? If before, it is more likely that benefits would be available. 3. Assuming that this was employer-provided disability insurance, what were the terms (language) of the policy? It may address this issue and provide for a finite period of benefits. Short-term disability insurance (which is the kind most often provided by an employer) normally pays benefits that are a percentage of earnings, and at that, often on a sliding downward scale. The fact that you were fired is not a "disability" contemplated by a disability insurance policy; therefore, if you are asking whether the fact of being fired triggers an entitlement to benefits, the answe is "No".
depends on your boss Another Answer There are local, state and federal laws against firing you based on your disability. Another Answer If you have left your job based… on an injury and are collecting a disability pension, and your company fires you, you are best advised to consult with an attorney so that you fully understand your rights.
