Hi there,
It may, however you may want to contact the SSA regarding this as they would have detailed information about your particular case.

I have a question. Hello I’m still working as part time. I’ll receiving ssdi benefit in July.
I was informed to ssdi application last December. My paycheck was biweekly. My company inform us that our paycheck date changed biweekly to semi monthly. Will I get in trouble?

Hi Dan,

It is always important to be 100% transparent with the SSA. It's a good idea to schedule an appointment and let them know.

If you accidently make more than the allotted amount for a month, what happens to your benefits?

HI Boyd,
If you receive SSDI, then the SSA may count that month as as successful trial work period month.

Hi Patty,
it would depend on what benefits you are receiveing, if you have SSDI, then you may be able to earn up to 850 a month without a change in your benefits. If you're receiving SSI benefits, then the SSA would deduct one dollar for every two that you earn.

Hi Cheryl,
I would report this to the SSA--it'll likely trigger a trial work period but so long as you don't earn more than SGA more than nine times over the next five years, you'll be fine.

Hi Crystal,

As long as your monthly income doesn't exceed the 2018 SGA limit, you should be okay.

I’m on disability and it’s not enough to live off. If I babysit a child in my home for 18 hours a week and earn around $180 a week, will my benefits be reduced in any way?
