Hi Jackson,
I really could not say in your particular case, but SSI is income based, and so the SSA reduces benefits one dollar for every two that you earn. You also may have "in-kind support" counted against your benefits as well.

Hello! I'm currently on SSDI and I have been reading the posts on here and I'm a little confused. Can I earn income without it effecting my SSDI? If so, how much? TIA

So that statement you stated was that one could not go over $1170. Per month.. does what we get on SSDI count towards the $1170? Or is it seperate
Look forward to hearing back thank you

Hi Shawna,

That's your monthly income including SSDI/SSI benefits and any additional income you make.

Best of Luck,

Hi Toya,
There's no set limit, but the SSA may reduce your benefits one dollar for every two that you earn.

Hi Chrystal,

It only affect your disability benefits if your monthly income exceeds the 2017 SGA limit $1,170/Month

Hi, i make under $840 a month and I am on SSD, but my employer wants to give me a 1099 as an independent contractor. Will the Social Security Administration accept this?

When working while on SSDI can you earn above the $1170 if you use this additional amount for an adaptive can so I can commute to work. I am a paraplegic older with shoulders that need therapy often.

If I work one day this month can I still collect disability without a problem . And the check is only about $300 and a one time deal can I still claim disability for the rest of the month how does disability react to that .

HI there,
I really could not say as the answer would vary by what disability benefits your son receives, however you may want to contact your local SSA office regarding this.
