Hi There,

There are no hour restrictions, you cannot make more than $850 a month, or you enter the Trial Work Period.

Hi Tami,

There is no limit on hours you can work. The SSA has the monthly income limit of $850 before entering the Trial Work Period.

I receive social security disability benefits. I want to try and work a part time job.
How much can I earn without losing my benefits?
Thank you!

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

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.

Hi Pam,

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.
