SSA does not count pensions as income.
According to the SSA page found here https://www.ssa.gov/planners/disability/dwork2.html
Two things can cause us to decide that you are no longer disabled and to stop your benefits.
Your disability benefits will stop if you work at a level we consider "substantial."
In 2016, average earnings of $1,130 or more per month ($1,820 or more per month if you are blind) are usually considered substantial.
