I am mentally disabled on SSDI on my last review I was told I could work to supplement my income. If I gross $ 800 in earned income will my SSDI income be lowered?

Hi Michele,

That should be okay since you are earning lower than $850/Month which would trigger a trial work period.

Hi There,

The number of hours does not matter, but if you earn more than $850/Month it could trigger a trial work period.

I am on SSDI and wanting to work but not enter into any trial work period. Does that mean my income can not be greater than $850? I have been reading your past responses and it looks like making the $1080 enters you into a trial work period which eventually affects your benefits. Please clarify. Thanks.

Hi Gwen,

You are correct, to NOT enter the trail work period, you need to make less than $850 a month. Once you make over $850, that month will count to your TWP.

Hi Amanda,

For any additional income such as a settlement like that, the SSA will count that as apart of your income and your SSI benefits could be affected.
