working 20 hours a week while receiving disability and collecting my full disability check. im 55..if I get reviewed would working the 20 hours hurt my chances of keeping my ss disability?....its kept under the amount I can make.

People on SSDI are allowed to work - I know 18 hours, but maybe it's 20. You would know better than I. I know my nephew works while on SSI. I think they actually encourage people to work if they are able.

So I'm not an expert, but I have 2 friends in addition to my nephew on disability and they all work part time and have for years

I've been on SSDI for 9 years. I worked part time for most of that time. As long as you don't make more than $1090 in any one month period, you can stay on forever and get the check and medicare.

Hi, sorry I am late to this thread. Can you please tell me what type of work you do? I'm wondering if SSA cares what type of work it is, in addition to earning under a certain amount?

Thank you.

Thank you.

I am worried that the SSDI folks would say to me, "well, if you are disabled due to depression, how are you able to do x even if part time?"

Sorry all, I googled and realized I had asked this same question in 2012. Sorry about that.
