Hi Everyone,

I have recently filled out a long form CDR, about 2 months ago I had to also fill out work report, which I did. I am currently working. I started out doing 4 hours weekly, moved to 8, then to 12, then back down to 8 because I was having problems. My question is this: will I likely lose my benefits because I have made these work attempts? I want to eventually get off disability, when I am able to fully support myself, I just haven't got there yet, and am working to get there with my team of doctors. I have been very worried since I mailed my long CDR in. Any advice or information is greatly appreciated.

SSDI recipients are allowed to try to work, regardless if they make more than the "substantial gainful activity" amount, for a 9 month trial work period. For 2018, the SSA considers any month where a person has a monthly income of more than $850 a trial work month.
