If I work any hours after submitting my SSI app, will the disqualify me?
Posted on: 21 Nov 2017

 I have applied for disability and/or SSI because I can't hold a regular (or any) job with my medical conditions. I am still looking for any kind of income or any job I can do and was offered to work about 5 hours this week but taxes would be taken out. Will working those hours disqualify me?

					It's very like it to not get approved if you are still working 
It's also likely to be denied the first  or even second time you apply 
Once you do get approve you could work but you have  to  submit the pay stubs  to ssi  and they deduct half the amount made from the ssi  check 
But give you $85 to keep 
So i.e. check it $100.00 
They subtract your 85.00
Left with 15.00 the divide  that I'm half and take 7.50 out of your check 
Also can't work more than 20 hours a week or more than 2000 a month 
Good luck

				If you don't get it this time I recommend an attorney.   Because once you get it they are responsible for back pay , attorney fees aren't cheap but most for this kind of stuff are only pay once they win  which  A makes  them more liable  to fight for it and B  nothing out of your pocket

					I applied for disability and was rejected twice, I finally got an interview and waiting to hear back. I don't think you working 5 hours is going to hurt you. In my state you can't work no more than 30 hrs a week or they will cut your pay back.

					Depending on where you live you will get denied fist 2 times I am on ssd I had to get a lawyer I can work 20 hrs a week or up to a certain amount of income a week but you have to report it if you go over the amount or the house they will deduct money from your ssi but I would not work while in the application process
