If I make 900 dollars a month will that affect my disability payments?

Hi There,

Hi There,

If you make over $850 a month you will enter the Trial Work Period. Once you complete the TWP the SSA may review your case to see if you can work enough to support your self and stop benefits.

There is no limit to the amount of hours you can work. However, if you earn more than $750 a month, it will trigger a work trial period.

Hi I received ssi $750 month but I wanted started workin a part time job that I can make 1200 a month would it affect my benefits

Hi Lexeyy,

Hi Lexeyy,

The maximum you can make a month is $1180, so making $1200 a month will most likely impact your benefits or have them stopped.

It really depends on the situation at hand. If you have further questions regarding that then you may want to speak with a SSA representative regarding that.

If you make 400 every 2 weeks

If you make 400 every 2 weeks from part time and get 935 social security will that messe up

Hi Micki,

Hi Micki,

The monthly income limit is $850 a month before you enter the TWP. So as long as you stay under that amount, it should not impact your benefits.

I am currently on Ssdi and 2

I am currently on Ssdi and 2 of my children receive SSI. I've recently been feeling like substitute teaching 1-2 days, probably just half days, would be something I could handle, on the days I felt well enough. The school is 2 houses away from mine, I wouldn't have to drive far. I feel like it would help emotionally with me as well. I am afraid it would hurt my current benefits and if I were to end up back in hospital, as I frequently do, we'd be in trouble. How do I find out if this is acceptable? Thanks

Hi Jill,

Hi Jill,

The most you can make in a month before entering the TWP is $850, but if you make under that then it most likely will not impact your benefits.

If some of your children are receiving SSI then their benefits are based on your household income so you'll want to make sure that it won't impact their benefits. You can call the SSA at 1-800-772-1213 or make an appointment to speak with someone in person at your local SSA office.

How mych can i make working

How mych can i make working above my disability check?

Hi Tanya,

Hi Tanya,

If you earn more $850 a month that could trigger a work trial period from the SSA. To be safe, your monthly income should not exceed that.

The SSA reduces SSI payments when child support is also being received.

I really can't say for sure. But you need to report any income you make from Uber to the SSA.
