    Default Disability question

    I have a general question I am unable to help find an answer for without contacting SS admin.
    When you are on SSDI is there an amount of money you can earn a month without counting towards being back to work or a trail work period.
    I know many cannot handle much work but tough times force something to be done even a few dollars part time.
    Does anyone know? thanks

    Yes they are. thank you for the wealth of information.
    I am desperate to earn any extra income to help pay my daughters medical bills. There is nothing I won't do if I can. However, I fear SS will take this as a reason to cut me lose. lol
    I know they have programs but I am only looking for part time and for my own personal reasons cannot do more and SSDI has been a life saver for me, so I hate to risk but my daughter needs me.

    Thanks everyone as always for the info.
    great forum

    THank you for the links and info. I too was wondering about supplemental income or help as I have missed a tremendous amount of work due to flare ups, illness, surgery and I work full time but when i receive my check it is a joke having used all of my sick/vacation time. Bank account is in overdraft almost every month since being sick..sucks!
