Thank you so much! Does your wife work? I was just wondering if my income would make any difference. My husband got Social Security Disability. He already got his back pay. I guess they would be separate though, right? He has an appt to talk to somebody next week. We were just curious. Thanks again!
No it dont matter
how much money you have or if you was married to a millionaire
if your disabled and get your SS and also you can work and
it will not affect your check as long as you dont make over i
think it is 1, 040 a month unless they raised it , if you make over
that every month then it would be considered substanial work and
then you could loose your check. But if you got SSI which is different then i am not sure how much you can work and keep your check but they do consider your spouses income too and take it
from your check .

Yeah,go ahead and get you a job after getting your Social Security Disability . They will cut you off so quick it will make your head spin. They will not pay you if you can work. If you can work,you should not be paid.If you draw Retirement Social Security,yes you can work so much,but not if your disable.

I hate to tell someone they don't know what they're talking about, but I'm afraid you don't. You can work and draw disability too, SS actually encourages you to work while on disability. Go to their web site and check it out, don't have to take my word for it.

Yes, they want you to work so they can take you off disability. What people fail to realize is disability is NOT always forever. They have 3 classes of disabled. Permanent (never going to get better, such as losing a limb, eye, etc), Maybe get better, such as cancer and Likely to get better, such as temporary injuries like back, knee, hand injuries. Once you are placed into one of those categories, that will help them determine how much effort they will put into getting back to work. If you permanetly disabled you will never hear from them. The maybe people files will be have your doctors records updated from time to time to check and she if your condition has improved, you might hear from them from time to time. The likely group is where the fraud cases comes from. Faking injuries is easy to do and they will watch you like a hawk. You will hear from them. They will want you to return to work and "give it a shot", because if your able to work they no longer have to pay you. They will tell to try and work and they will pay you while your trying it, but once you have tried it enough they will cut you off and even if they don't totaly cut you off they will deduct how much you are working for from your SS payments. So if you get a job that pays $400 per month, expect to see that much taken out of your SS check. The likely group will also have your file reviewed once ever 3 years at a minimum. They will update your records, request your doctor files and even call you for another interview. At this point is where people get in trouble, if they find ANYTHING wrong with your file/report they can and will cut you off and make you start over. In some cases when they suspect fraud, they send out there own investigators to spy on you in your daily activities and if they find you out back chopping wood, when you tell them you have a bad back, expect to find yourself in front of a judge.

And before someone says "you don't know what your talking about", my brother works for the SSA in Maryland and I've heard him tell this same story 50 times in the last 15 years he has worked there.

I'll make it easy for you, post a social security web site that says they will cut your social security disabilty income if you work. You can't show me anywhere that it says if you work and make $400 or anything close to that a month that they will cut that from your disability pay. It just don't work that way. Just post the site, real easy.

You need to call Melody Simpson in Somerset Ky, she is in with Jay McShirley. Just thought i would lend some good advise. I don't know of anyone that has used her that did not get approved, and know of some who really were not, well you know what i mean. I hope this helps you. and good luck with your case, you do have the right to change attorneys.

Go ahead and get you a part time job if your on disable then come back in about 4-5 months and tell us what happend. You know they are not going to tell you, you will get cut off. They don't tell you that so they can if you work.Like I said before if you able to work then you don't need a disability check

Been doing it for 10 years, have filed all the right papers, not hiding a thing, been thru 2 re evaluations and never a problem and have never been cut a dime. Always filed my taxes every year, when min. wage went up I contacted SS and let them know about the pay increase, never a problem. Making between $500 and $650 a month working part time.

I think you are confusing SSI with SSDI. On SSI income does become a factor and you are cut if you work. Everyone on SSDI does not get SSI. SSI is paid to people other than those that are disabled too, it is a supplemental income for people not making enough to support themselves and their family. SSDI is strictly disability and it is not cut. Now they do have guidelines and if you earn above those for a certain length of time you are taken completely off disability but your disability pay is NEVER cut.

Yeah,I know but what I was saying,if they see that you can work,then they would say you can work so you don't need SSDI.You know getting the SSDI is hard sometimes,thats the reason I would be afraid to get cut off and then the old body get worse and then not be able to get the SSDI back

If your benefits have ended because of work, you can request that we start your benefits again without having to file a new application. There are some important conditions:

You have to be unable to work because of your medical condition.
The medical condition must be the same as or related to the condition you had when we first decided that you should receive disability benefits.
You have to file your request to start your benefits again within 60 months of the date you were last entitled to benefits.

I think the person who said "get a job" is heartless. Before I got ill I made good money and worked all of my life. I even tried to stay working sick but I could not do it anymore. I think the person who said this is a very shallow and bitter person. I want to encourage any one who is ill and waiting for disability not to even let this person effect you. They do not understand. I felt terrible quilt when I filed. It is a hard decision....it is very hard on my children.... then hateful people like this person makes you feel worst.
