It's not quite that simple in that you must keep the Social Security Administration (SSA) informed as to your work status. Here are the latest limits, but remember you must inform the SSA of your status before engaging in employment. Here is what they say:

Disability beneficiaries’ earnings limits:

If you work while receiving disability benefits, you must tell us about

your earnings no matter how little you earn. You may have unlimited earnings during a trial work period of up to nine months (not necessarily in a row) and still receive full benefits.

Once you have completed your nine-month trial work period, we will determine if you are still entitled to disability benefits. You also may be eligible for other work incentives to help you make the transition back to work.

Substantial Gainful Activity (non-blind) $1,170 per month for 2017.

Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Please remember to rate my response as that is the only way the SITE will credit me for assisting you today.

Thanks very much,

Steve G.
