Hi Bonnie,

The $1,1170 threshold is the maximum amount you can earn while on disability benefits without losing your benefits, it has nothing to do with an amount of hours you can work.

Hi there,
The SSA may reduce your benefits one dollar for every two that you earn for SSI benefits, but your SSDI benefits may not change. It's a good idea to contact the SSA regarding this.

Hi there,
You may be able to do so, however it's always a good idea to contact the SSA before doing so.

Is it true you can earn as much as you want the first eight months without loosing your benefits?

Hi Tina,
That is not correct. You may be able to earn more than the SGA of $1,170 a month without change to your benefits under certain circumstances, but that is not true for every person who works while receiving disability.

Hi Lynn,
If you earn two dollars, they would reduce your SSI benefits check by one dollar for that month.

So my question is if your getting SSI of $735.00 a month and you wanna work for the first time cuz you wanna rent for your own place and you need a little income for utility how much money should you get and not to loss your benefit.. you mention that they'll reduce one dollar every two I'm confused what that means in every two hundred that I make or what

Hi Lola,
If you earn $100 in a month at work, the SSA would reduce your benefits by $50 for that month. That is, take how much you would earn, divide it in half, and that would be close to the amount that the SSA reduces your benefits.

Hi Justin,
I could not say exactly, but you may have a reduction in benefits up to 315 dollars. It's a good idea to contact your local SSA office as they'd be able to go over how your income would change specifically.

Hi there,
I could not say as we do not have any specific information about your case, we are not affiliated with the SSA or the Federal government . You may want to contact them with this question, you can get in touch with the SSA by calling them at 1-800-772-1213.

Hi Michelle,
If you're receiving income based benefits, the SSA would reduce your benefits one dollar for every two dollars that you earn.

This is the same person who inquired about applying for unemployment while receiving social security disability.. I did not report my or work to the social security administration as I was afraid of loosing my benefits also.. If I quite my job due to my manager making my job uncomfortable and unneccessarly stressful knowing Iam already on disability can I still receive unemployment benefits?

Hi Angela,
SSI benefits are adjusted based on income, you may want to contact the SSA regarding this as they can adjust your benefits based on your current income.

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.
