Getting SSI and Working Part-Time

Hello,

I am new to the boards and have a question. I just filed for social security benefits because I am no longer able to work. I suffer from bipolar, depression, ocd, anexity and so on. Anyhow the reason I am filing is because I am not able to work with others, I have lost many jobs since having this disease Anyway I was wondering, I work a newspaper route and bring home about 950 a month before expenses (independent contractor). Can I keep the route or do I need to stop? It is something that gets me out of house and, and I dont have to work with anyone, so it would be nice to keep.

Any advice would be great!

I believe the amount of money you can make is roughly $700.

Re: Getting SSI and Working Part-Time

SGA amounts are differ from state to state. You should be able to look it up on the web. just type it in SGA for your state , and social security amounts.
Example In CA it is up to $1000 each month, and CA is one of the highest amount paid to the disabled .
If you are making too much money that is allowed , then your claim will be promptly denied.

Re: Getting SSI and Working Part-Time

beleive it is $720.00 for ssd, dont know if ssi is same. if you are independant contractor, paid on 1099, that 950.00 is bussiness gross, not your personal pay. 950 minus buss. expenses leaves your gross pay. EASILY below the max amount.

Re: Getting SSI and Working Part-Time

The SGA rules are pretty clear once you are approved but murky prior. For example, there is an "unsuccessful work attempt"- a short period you can earn SGA but not sure what the rules are when still filing.

Re: Getting SSI and Working Part-Time

You can work but it makes for more paperwork no matter if you are under SGA amount. I went thru that but I had quit work after filing and there was issues that my lawyer messed up on and it had to be fixed before I got my ssdi so I would really get a good lawyer and ask the lawyer. just because it happen to me it may not happen to you. It just makes things a little more confusing when you work. Good Luck to you
