Hi Connie,
The number of hours you work does not matter. You cannot work at a job in which you make above the substantial gainful activity (SGA) amount. The SGA amount for 2017 is $1,170 per month.
Best Wishes,
Eric

Hi Helen,
Disabled people who are approved for Social Security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits will receive Medicare. However, SSDI recipients aren't eligible to receive Medicare benefits until two years after their date of entitlement.

When on disability is the $1070.00 maximum gross based on an weekly amount or a monthly average?

HI there,
If you're on SSDI benefits, SGA would be considered $1,170 a month in 2017, it was $1070 a month in 2016.

Hi there,

If you're on SSDI benefits, and are able to work and earn less than $1,170 a month, are you going to be allowed to work under the threshold indefinitely?

Hi Patrick,
Unfortunately, that $1170 figure is the amount that the SSA sets to determine if you can do Substantial Gainful Activity, it is not the limit that the SSA sets for income for SSDI recipients. If you earn over $840 a month, you may be subject to the trial work period rules. You can find some more information here:
