Working and Disability
Income limits when collecting Social Security benefits especially apply to those who are not of retirement age and receive disability benefits. In some cases, the Social Security Administration will issue benefits to people of a younger age who can prove disabilities that prohibit ordinary work. If you have a disability, you may be able to work sometimes but not all of the time. However, be really careful about how much you earn; you can easily lose your checks and any insurance programs for which you are approved.
In some cases, you may be approved for a "trial work period" during which you can earn unlimited income without an adverse impact to your benefits. But remember if you earn too much money, you might be declared ineligible for disability in your caseworker's review.
If you earn more than $1,000 in a month, you generally have earned too much and may be considered ineligible for disability. However, blind people can earn up to $1,640 a month and still receive their disability checks.
