Hi Lynn,
If you earn two dollars, they would reduce your SSI benefits check by one dollar for that month.

Hi Lola,
If you earn $100 in a month at work, the SSA would reduce your benefits by $50 for that month. That is, take how much you would earn, divide it in half, and that would be close to the amount that the SSA reduces your benefits.

Hi Justin,
I could not say exactly, but you may have a reduction in benefits up to 315 dollars. It's a good idea to contact your local SSA office as they'd be able to go over how your income would change specifically.

Hi there,
I could not say as we do not have any specific information about your case, we are not affiliated with the SSA or the Federal government . You may want to contact them with this question, you can get in touch with the SSA by calling them at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Michelle,
If you're receiving income based benefits, the SSA would reduce your benefits one dollar for every two dollars that you earn.

This is the same person who inquired about applying for unemployment while receiving social security disability.. I did not report my or work to the social security administration as I was afraid of loosing my benefits also.. If I quite my job due to my manager making my job uncomfortable and unneccessarly stressful knowing Iam already on disability can I still receive unemployment benefits?

Hi Angela,
SSI benefits are adjusted based on income, you may want to contact the SSA regarding this as they can adjust your benefits based on your current income.
