Customer Question
Hello, I've been on...

Hello, I've been on Social Security Disability since 2010 and would like to try to work part time. I'm struggling financially and need additional income. I'm not sure if I can comfortably work but would like to try and I can't afford to lose my Medicare Advantage Plan.

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Is there anything else the Retirement Accountant should be aware of?

Not that I can think of right now.

Hey! I'm Carter. I'm a CPA and would love to help you out.

You can work part time and still qualify for your Social Security Disability. However, you cannot make more than $1,170 a month. If you make more than that, you are considered to be in a substantial gainful activity and will be disqualified from the benefit.

You can find more information on the topic here: https://www.ssa.gov/pubs/EN-05-10095.pdf. Social Security provides a really great breakdown of it.

If you need anything else, please let me know. If not, please leave a rating! Thanks!
