Hi There,

As long as you make under 2019's monthly SGA of $880, you won't be entered into the Trial Work Period.

But how many hours per week could you work if you made over $100 less than what's stated? I'm trying to find out so I can try to get a job.

Hi Kolby,

The number of hours you work does not matter. You must remain within the income limits or you will enter the Trial Work Period.

Hi Karen,

It does not matter how many hours you work, but you cannot make more than $880 a month, or you will enter into the Trial Work Period.

Hi Talisa,

You are able to work on disability as long as you don't exceed the monthly limit that the SSA deems Substantial Gainful Employment. In 2020, this amount is $1260/month

Hello, I get 724.11 a month for me being disabled but that isn't nearly enough to live on. I was offered a part time job at a dollar store doing easy work due to my injuries but I need to know how many hours I can work each week and not mess my disability up cause god knows I need it! Please help me figure this out... Thanks

Hi Marcus,

The number of hours you work does not matter, but your income does. If you make less than $880 a month, then your benefits should be fine .

Hi Yune,

The Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) for 2020 is now $1,260. If you are able to make this much, the SSA will reevaluate if you qualify for benefits. For 2020, if you make over $910, then you'll be entered into the Trial Work Period.

Hi Pam,

If you earn more than $771 in a month, that could trigger a trial work period from the SSA.

Hi Roco,

It depends on how much you earn in a month. If you earn more than $771 in a month, then that could trigger a work trial period.

Hi Tammy,

If your income doesn't exceed a certain threshold to trigger a work trial period, then it is okay to work those hours.

Hi Timothy,

You should be fine if you're making $302! To entire the Trial Work Period, you'd need to around $880 a month rather than the $302.

Hi Jennifer,

It would depend on how much your son earns in a month that includes his SSI benefits and his work program. You may want to speak with a representative from the SSA regarding that.

Hi Beverly,

The amount of hours per week does not matter, it's all about how much income you make per month on top of your disability benefits.

Hi Gregory,

If you can't work for at least 12 months because of a condition your are experiencing, you can check the SSA's Blue Book to see if your condition qualifies for disability benefits.

Hi Lonetta,

The amount of hours per month do not factor in affecting your benefits, it's how much you make per month that can.

Hi Tinna,

There is no limit for the hours you can work, but rather a limit on monthly income. If you make more than $880 a month then you will be entered into the Trial Work Period.

Hi Samantha,

As long as you are under $880 a month you won't enter the Trial Work Period or be over the SGA, so you likely won't have anything happen. I would call the SSA just to confirm. Their number is 1-800-772-1213 or visit your local office.

Hi Becca,

If you are receiving SSI then your husband income plus your new income from working may affect if. If you are on SSDI, then his income will have no impact but you cannot make more than $880 or you'll enter the trial work period.
