Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

The child can work but cannot have substantial earnings, in 2016 it is $1130 a month. If the child has the ability to earn more than the minimum stated by SSA, he is not considered disabled for social security purposes.

If I am calculating it correctly, you were born in 1994. How you could be working in 1987?
