CAN I WORK AND STILL RECEIVE SSDI?

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 Annmaria,
you may be able to work at this job and keep your benefits, but it may be a good idea to contact your SSI caseworker to find out exactly how it would affect your benefits if you do get the job.

Hi Sheree,
You may be able to make up to $1,130 a month while still being able to receive SSDI benefits.

HI Tonya,
You can work as many hours as you are able or that you'd like to work, however if you make too much income you may lose your benefits. It may be a good idea to contact the SSA for detailed information.

Had a double lung transplant 5 years ago. Been on SSDI before transplant. Now o have less than 50% lung function but I'm sure there is something I could do to make a few extra bucks each month. I'm scared if I go back to work SSA will say if you can work 15 hours a week then you can work 40. I tire real easy and manual labor is out of the question. I'm oxygen dependent with exertion. Just wondering if it's really worth the risk of making $500 a month and loosing $1550 a month? Btw I was a firefighter/medic and I know I can't go back to that.

I receive $927 per month for my disability. What can I make if I work part-time so that my benefits aren't affected?

Hi Amy,
It really depends on the type of benefit that you're getting, but if you earn under $1,130 you may be able to keep your benefits.

Hi Vanessa,
You may want to tell the SSA that you're earning that money, but it may not affect your benefits because SSDI is based on work history, not income.

I collect SSDI. i would like to try and work part time with out losing any benefits. if you go back to work PT do you have to contact SSDI and tell them you are going back to work PT? what do you mean that they base the $1,130.00 a month off your past work history?
so i could make $1,130.00 a month before they tax me?

Hi Brian,
Yes, it is a good idea to contact the SSA if you plan on working while receiving disability.

One of your replys said you can make $1,130.00 a month the other one said $800.00 a month?
if you get $1,700.00 a month SSDI you can only make 800.00 a month with out triggering the TWP? if you make more than 800.00 then you would go into the trial work period?
