Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 04/22/2011 - 11:28

I RECEIVE SSDI DUE TO A PERMANTLY DISSABLED RIGHT ARM AND HAND (THAT IS WHY I TYPE IN ALL CAPS, I.E., ITS EASIER); I HAVE SEVERE BACK PAIN AND I HAVE DIFFICULTY WALKING AS A RESULT OF A BROKEN NECK (FRACTURE OF C5 & C6). I STILL WANT TO WORK THOUGH... DOING WHAT, I DON'T KNOW. CAN I WORK AND RECEIVE SSDI AND IS THERE AN INCOME LIMIT? GRANT FROM GEORGIA.

Hi Toby,
You may be able to qualify for disability benefits with seizures, however many people are denied the first time they apply. It may be a good idea to speak with a disability advocate or attorney, as they can help you through the process of appeals. If you fill out the form here:

We can have one reach out to you.

Ok so my fiance earns SSDI of $590 a month and he's just returned to working but wants to get a new job where he earns more. Im just slightly confused by everything.... Is he allowed to earn 1130 a month on top of his SSDI check or is it 1130 a month including his SSDI check so if he earns 590 already be can only earn 540 a month working? And what's this 810 everyone is talking about?

Hi Emily,
the $810 is for the Trial Work Period Program. Your husband may be able to earn up to $1,130 on top of his SSDI check.

Hi Dawn,
Unfortunately I could not say as there are limits on income rather than hours worked.

I am receiving SSDI for developmental disability. If I try to work a full time job and it does not work out will I have to reapply for SSDI if I would work the 9 month trial period or will I not lose it? The amount monthly would be over the amount that you can make monthly.

Hi Curtis,
If it doesn't work out, you may still be eligible for benefits without re-applying.

I have been disabled and drawing 646.00 (started out lower) for about 25 years. I have a crippling disease that run in our family (about 40 that has it) I also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and other things, but I am only 53. I ride a scooter, at all times. I would like to know if I would lose my disability money if I subbed at the school (2nd-4th grades) a day or two a week to get me out of the house (days I feel like it) making 60.00 a day.

Hi Mel,
If you're receiving SSI then you may need to report that income to the SSA, however you may have a reduction in your benefits because of the fact that you're gaining an income.

Is SSI not the same as SSDI? I can't have a time of a 9 month trial period? I guess after reading answers of others questions like mine, I'm not understanding why I would have a reduction in my disability amount if I don't make near the 1130.00.

Hi Mel,
SSI is not the same as SSDI and it does not have the trial work period. However, you may have a reduction in benefits if you earn over a certain amount with SSI.

Hi Debi,
That $1,030 per month is the figure that they use for SSDI eligibility, if you make less than than you would be considered eligible for SSDI benefits.

Hi Sophi,
You may be held liable for any overpayments that the SSA determines you had received.
