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 Shirley,
You would be able to earn up to $840 a month before SSDI benefits would be affected.

Hi David,
You may want to check in with your local SSA office regarding this, but if you're on SSI they may reduce your benefits by one dollar for every two that you make.

If you get $832/month, is that SSI, or SSDI? ALSO, can you ever receive both SSDI and SSI? Simply not enough to live on even though we have downsized as far as we can go unless we move to a shelter. Thank you for any response.

I was wondering if I would be able to receive ssdi for medical issues that I have. I have pvc's which I will be having a surgical procedure for and high blood pressure?

Hi Robin,

You could be able to. I would recommend filling out an application on the SSA's website to see if you could qualify.

I am posting for my sister who suffers from Acromegaly, a pituitary disorder. She has worked hard all her life and now the disease is really taking a toll. She has to take multiple daily shots to keep her growth hormone level down but the price tag is without insurance is ~14K. She has been a rock star orthodontist assistant for almost 27 years and has paid $500 a month covering through her employer to cover the meds. We are very worried that 'when' the day comes she can no longer work, would SS disability cover this life required medicine?

Hi Veronica,

There is no limit on how many hours you can work, but you cannot exceed the monthly SGA limit which is $1,170/month

I am currently on SSDI and do not want to lose it, or have it reduced. I would like to work part time just because I am not making enough with these benefits ? Can I work if the monthly income is about $750 a month? I know I would need to report this. What should I do?

I receive SSSI but don't have enough money with this. I would like to work part time but I don't want to lose my benefits. What should I do? Can I work part time and make less than $820 a month with no changes in benefits?

Hi Lisa,
There would only be a limit on earnings, you would be able to earn up to $1,170 a month, however if you earn over $840 a month the SSA may change your benefits. It may be a good idea to contact the SSA if you're planning to go back to work.
