    Working on SSD

    Anyone know what the limit on income is while working and still collecting SSD in NJ? Thanks

    http://www.prainc.com/SOAR/ssaInfo/p...20Benefits.pdf this is a quick sheet, but the amounts at the top are ssi not ssdi

    It is 720 a month for the trial work period which is 18 months. After this you can earn 1000 a month and still keep your check. Please note if you make $1000.01 you will lose your check. You can deduct medical expenses and make over 1000 but keep every receipt.
    If you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.


    Sometimes it is easier to widen doors than it is to open minds.

    Thanks. Do you know if this is before or after tax?

    before

    Try to get a copy of the redbook, or look at it on ss website. Read it if you are working.

    the redbook:

    to add to the picture, if you are on ssdi and work related expenses (IWRE) put you under significant gainfull activity (SGA), you can make more than 1000.

    So you are saying you can only make <$720 mnth during the trial period? Then after trial period u can make more? A $1000?

    If true that makes lil sense to me....I read it as you could make as much as you wanted in the trial period??

    Maybe a lawyer or CPA member here can chime in

    You can make as much as you want during the trial period. If you make less than the $720 it is not counted as a month of sga. Does that make sense?
