even with SSI he is allowed to work

however, with 40 hours a week at 10 an hour it will probaably be above the thresh hold to keep receiving SSI

as per the SS government website

Generally, SSDI recipients can't start doing "substantial gainful activity" (SGA) and continue to receive disability benefits. In a nutshell, doing SGA means you are working and making more than $1,180 per month in 2018 (or $1,970 if you're blind). There are exceptions to this rule, however. For SSDI recipients, there is a trial work period during which you can make more than the SGA amount without losing your benefits.

SSDI recipients are entitled to test their ability to work and continue to receive full benefits regardless of whether they make more than the SGA amount, for a nine-month trial work period. For 2018, the SSA considers any month where a person has a monthly income of more than $850 a trial work month. If you are self-employed, any month where you work more than 80 hours (or earn more than $850) is a trial work month.

Once you have completed the nine-month trial work period, for a period of 36 months, you can still receive SSDI for any month where your earnings fall below the SGA level. This is called the extended period of eligibility. In other words, if you earn less than $1,180 per month, you will get benefits, but if you earn more than $1,180 per month, you won't get disability benefits for that month.

Following your trial work period, if your SSDI payments have stopped because your income is substantial, the SSA gives you five years during which your benefits can be reinstated if you again stop working because of your disability. During the five-year period, the SSA will not require you to file a new disability application to get benefits. This is called expedited reinstatement.
