Both SSI and SSDI employment earning rules apply to the award benefit that they receive.
10/22/2018 7:53:04 PM
"If receiving SSI then person will get 1/2 of (amount earned -$20) per month taken from benefit.E.G. Person has $733 in SSI (which is the current Federal Benefit Rate) Person is employed and makes $1000/mo. Person receives $1000-$20= $980/2=$490. $733 - $490 = $243. In total the person would have earned $1000 (work) + $243 (SSI) = $1243. If the person consistently makes 2 times the Federal Benefit Rate of $733 which is $1486 then the person would lose the benefit but would have to maintain that consistently."
