HI Mindy,
It really depends on the benefits that you are receiving. You may want to contact the SSA for information based on your own benefits.

Hi Nita,
You may want to contact the SSA to let them know you are working and how much you are earning.

Hi Diane,
If you're receiving benefits based on your income, then your benefits would be reduced by about one dollar for every two that you earn.

I'm currently receiving SSI benefits for disability and working. My question is how will my SSI check be affected if I go over the allowed SGA amount?

Hi Kareem,
I really could not say, you may want to contact your local SSA office as they would have detailed info about your case.

I'm on social security disability and now started working. I earn $816 per month. Is this amount changing my benefit amount or causing problems?

Hi Bill,

It shouldn't be causing problems do your monthly account since it is below the 2017 SGA monthly limit, but if it is causing problems you should contact the SSA at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi There,

There is no limit to the amount of hours you can work, it cannot exceed the 2017 SGA monthly limit.

Hi Austin,
You may be able to do so, but it's a good idea to contact the SSA regarding this as they would have specific details about your case, so that you can plan based on that.

i am totally disabled and am on ssi since 1994....with the slow increase in ssi increases i have nothing left at the end of the month ...the v.a. (i am a veteran) has offered to let me apply for low income v.a. payments to help supplement my ssi earnings so that i have a little left over each month will this affect my ssi payments ?

Hi Bill,
It may as SSI benefits are based on income and as such are reduced about one dollar for every two that you earn. However, you may also have an increase in income overall as you are eligible for both benefits.

Does SSDI contact the IRS about the money you bring in, and what if the employer pays cash?
