I worked an eBay store while on ssdi and I did not report it. I did make under 1000 a month. Should I make an appointment. I am worried.

Hi Dan,

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.

Hi Patty,

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,

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.
