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.

Sorry for so many questions if I go over the trial work period amount because some months have five weeks then I will probably run out of twp in 4 years or so...from what I can read I would go into an epe for 36 months what happens after that? And does social security ever say that since u can work part time u can work full time....with my mental conditions I don't think I could handle that and my psychiatrist and therapit think so too

Hi Jeremy,
After the TWP, if you earn anything over SGA once, you will lose your benefits, but there will be a period of rapid reinstatement if you find you can no longer work shortly after. So long as you avoid using all for your trial work months, you should be ok.

Hi Skeen,
This is an excellent question, and one I unfortunately do not know the answer to! I would recommend contacting the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 to inquire about this.

Hi there,
You may only lose your SSDI if you are earning over $1,130 a month or if you are performing work that the SSA had determined that you were unable to do.

Hi There,
You may be just fine, the SSA may consider his part time work an attempt to return to work that was not successful in their view. It may be a good idea to get in touch with the SSA and ask them their policies about working while receiving benefits.

I applied for ssi and ssdi in august 16 and was approved in december. I was told i would receive ssi but online it says my payment for jan 2017 is 0.00 but has a one time payment of a few hundred for ssi backpay i guess. I work a part time job that brings in 630 monthly to support me and my 3 children. I was told i was approved for ssdi as well but am not in pay status yet and told the amount. It is enough that i wont receive ssi anymore but i cant suffice off of just that amount. Can i keep my job to supplement income or will my children receive benefits from me? so that i can make it through and not work because its hard i cant take my meds and work and i hurt all 3 hours a day that i do work. If they receive benefits we can suffice but i was wondering will they?

Hi Nicole,
Your children may be eligible for benefits based off of your work record, and you may be able to continue working while receiving benefits. You may want to contact your local SSA office, they can give you details about what you would need to do to keep working and still receive SSDI benefits.

Hi John,
So long as you are not in violation of the SSA's guidelines, you may not lose your benefits if you file your taxes.

Hi Angel,
If you're on SSDI, then you would need to make less than $840 a month to ensure that the SSA does not consider you in a trial work period.
