Hi Lexeyy,

The maximum you can make a month is $1180, so making $1200 a month will most likely impact your benefits or have them stopped.

Hi There,

You can earn up to $850 a month before entering the Trial Work Period.

Hi Stanley,

It really depends on the situation at hand. If you have further questions regarding that then you may want to speak with a SSA representative regarding that.

Hi Micki,

The monthly income limit is $850 a month before you enter the TWP. So as long as you stay under that amount, it should not impact your benefits.

I am currently on Ssdi and 2 of my children receive SSI. I've recently been feeling like substitute teaching 1-2 days, probably just half days, would be something I could handle, on the days I felt well enough. The school is 2 houses away from mine, I wouldn't have to drive far. I feel like it would help emotionally with me as well. I am afraid it would hurt my current benefits and if I were to end up back in hospital, as I frequently do, we'd be in trouble. How do I find out if this is acceptable? Thanks

Hi Jill,

The most you can make in a month before entering the TWP is $850, but if you make under that then it most likely will not impact your benefits.

If some of your children are receiving SSI then their benefits are based on your household income so you'll want to make sure that it won't impact their benefits. You can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 or make an appointment to speak with someone in person at your local SSA office.

Hi Tanya,

If you earn more $850 a month that could trigger a work trial period from the SSA. To be safe, your monthly income should not exceed that.

Hi Kim,

Yes, you can work while on SSDI benefits. However, if you earn more than $850 a month, it could trigger a work trial period from the SSA.

It depends on how much money you make working part time. If you're monthly income exceeds $750 a month you could trigger a work trial period.

Hi Jim,

Yes you can. The amount of time does not matter, but if you earn more than $850, you could trigger a work trial period.
