Hi Kiki,

The amount of hours does not matter. If you earn more than $850/month you could trigger a trial work period.

Hi Keith,

The amount of hours you work per week does not matter. If you earn more than $771 per month, that could trigger a trial work period.

My employer needs me to work a extra shift for the next two weeks. Will this affect my disability?

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 .
