Hi there,
There is no hourly limit for working, however if your income is over $1,175 a month from working, you may not be considered eligible for benefits.

If I'm on Ssdi and I have a chance to make some extra money. I need more income and I would make under 1000 a month. It says I can't make over 1170 a month. Will my check be stopped for working as long as I don't go over 1170.

Hi Matthew,

There is hourly limit to work. If your monthly income exceeds the SGA limit $1,170/Month you could lose your benefits.

I receive Social Security disability. They determined that I had exhausted the 9 month trial work period while waiting for my benefits. I have been offered a job 2 days a week that would total $640 a month in income besides my benefits. Do I need to contact Social Security or is this well under the limit?

Hi Jim,

You should contact the SSA to let them know about any additional income that you may receive. Better be safe than sorry.

Hi Glenn,
Benefits are either based on income for SSI, or based on work record for SSDI.
