SSI payments are reduced by the amount of dollars earned, so someone could earn $200 one month and have his/her SSI payments reduced accordingly.

While on SSI, can I work and if so how many hours a week can I work while receiving 733.00 a month which does not help me enough?
Thank you

Hi Jason,
Hours actually don't matter (unless you're working more than 80 hours per week), but income does. If you're earning more than $1,170 per month, you will no longer qualify for SSI benefits.

Do you have to inform SSDI if you want to start working a few hours a week?

You should report all earned income to the SSA, but you can comfortably earn up to $800 per month without worrying about losing your SSDI benefits.

Hi Lesley,
You may be able to, but it may be a good idea to check in with the SSA regarding this.
