I am currently on ssdi, when my trial work period is up, will they deduct any of my earnings? If I I continue to work but earn under the substantial amount aloud.

HI Patricia,
When the trial work period is up, you would be eligible for benefits only for the months that you do not make over the 1,150 limit.

So if I'm on SSDI I can make less than 1,100.00 a month it won't effect my disability payments is that correct?

Hi Fred,
Generally yes, but it's a good idea to check in with the SSA to find out if your case would be different.

Hi Lynn,
Your mother may be able to do so, but if she's in doubt she may want to contact the SSA regarding this as they would have detailed information about her case.

How do you determine benefit amount?

Bryan

Hi Sherri,
We are not affiliated with the SSA or the federal government, so we do not determine benefit amounts. Generally the SSA would take either your history of paying FICA taxes, or if you're applying for SSI, they would take your income and resources into account.

HI there,
If you are receiving disability based on your work record, then you may be able to do so, however it would be a good idea to contact the SSA regarding your case. You can contact them at 1-800-772-1213.

If you are collecting ssdi and worked in 2017 do have to file taxes

Hi Pat,

For the majority of people, Social Security Disability benefits are not taxable. If you or your spouse have another source of substantial income, it's likely your SSDI benefits could be taxed by the federal government.

If you have any further questions, you should speak with a SSA representative just to be sure. Best of luck.
