Thank you SO much for our reply to me. This is very helpful info. One last thing, if you can bear with me: Do they ask what kind of work you are doing?
Like if the job is complex to a certain degree, are they going to come back at you and say, well, if you can handle that, you must not be depressed anymore?
Or they could say, if you can do that one or two days a week, why not full time?
Thank you for any answers, I really appreciate this!
> You have to tell them soon as you start a job. How much you make a month. Hours. Salary. If you want to keep your SSDI you have to make less than $1000/month. And you have to tell them all the time what you make each month, when they ask. If you are blind you can make more. For the first 9 months you can make any amount. This is the trial period, which you stay in for as long as you don't have 9 months of making $720/month or more. Any 9 months within 5 years. But once you have 9 months you are in the extended period, where you can't make more than $1000/m or you will lose it. After 3 years in this stage if you ever make for than $1000 in one month you lose it all together.
> Basicaly what I'm saying is you can make up to $1000/m and keep the payments. Forever.
