Second opinion] I am...

Second opinion] I am on SS disability, I also work part time for a bank, on line and at home. My wages have gone up and my W from last year reflects $26,000 in box 3 of my W2. I have no problem in paying a penalty on what I made, but is my disability in jeopardy at all and if not what will I owe?

Accountant's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

MS

Accountant's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Yes

Generally, you may not be involved into "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) and continue to receive disability benefits.

SGA means you are working and making more than $1,170 per month in 2017 (or $1,920 if you're blind).

With some exceptions - specifically - there is a trial work period during which you can make more than the SGA amount without losing your benefits.
