Hi Anna,
I really could not say, but your SSI benefits may be reduced one dollar for every two that you earn.

Hi can I lose my SSDI if I stay under the $1070 monthly limit but reach the 36 month mark?

How is monthly income determined while on ssdi? Is it by when you get your paycheck? if your check is paid in May but you worked at the end of April/beginning of May? Is that considered all in May?

Hi Margaret,

With any specific questions regarding monthly, I would recommend speaking to a SSA representative. 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Ann,

There is no limit to amount of hours you can work. As long as your monthly income doesn't exceed the 2017 SGA limit you will be okay.

HI there,
there is no set limit for amount of time you can work, but your benefits may be affected if you earn over $850 a month.

Hi there,
you may want to contact TRS regarding this as they may have guidelines that differ from the SSA's disability guidelines.
