Good info. Here's my question. My 22 yr old son who is still my at home dependent, born disabled and receives SSDI. He would like to work (for sake of interaction) at a movie theater making $8.10 hr and for eight hours a week. Is this going to hinder his SSDI? And who do I call at SSA to let them know he's working and when do I call? Thanks.

Hi Craig,

Your son's monthly salary cannot exceed the SGA limit $1,170/Month. I would recommend letting the case working at your local SSA office who has handled your son's case.

Best of Luck,

Thanks Eric. We spoke to SSA. They stated that the amount he's going to make won't even come close to the SGA or the TWP. They further stated that after his first full month of working to mail, fax or bring in that full month of stubs. We were told that after that time there won't be much to do, essentially with him grossing under $300 a month, there isn't an issue. Its more for social interaction. Hope that helped some others with the same issue. Thanks again!!!!!

Sorry that you are constantly having to answer the exact same question over and over, so I will ask a different question. What if you are on SSDI, but only make $800 a month. I know the TWP is $840 or more, my question is do you still need to report to SSA if you are making less than the TWP starting limit of $840?

Am I correct in understanding that after 36 months on the EPE, say month 37 and any thereafter, that if you make above the SGA amount, you will have your benefits terminated, so in order to keep them you need to stay below the SGA amount that is determined for that particular year, ie $1,170 for 2017 for months 37 onward.

HI there,
You would be eligible for benefits for 36 months after completing a trial work period ( That is 9 months of making over $840 a month from work) for any month that you make less than the SGA, but you would not be eligible for benefits from month 37 onward, though you would be able to get expedited reinstatement if you are unable to make SGA after those 36 months.

How do you get expedited reinstatement when the Soc. Sec. office will not return your calls??? I read something where you have five years to appeal a decision even though they say 60 days.

You'll need to file the appeal online or connect with them over the phone. I do not believe the SSA calls back applicants often. You can file online under your My SSA account.
