woman on computer On June 2, 2018, new capabilities were added to my Social Security accounts. The my Social Security online portal now accepts wage reports electronically from Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients and deemors, concurrent beneficiaries, and representative payees. This capability had been available only to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries and their representative payees.

This new application makes it possible to avoid visits to a field office to report wages in person.  However, users must still contact an office to report when they first start working for each new employer. It’s also important to note that representative payees are able to report wages, but won’t have access to beneficiaries’ or recipient’s other information. When you sign up for or log in to your personal my Social Security account, you’ll have access to this convenient application on your desktop, laptop, and mobile device. After you report your wages online, you can save or print a copy of your receipt.

We’re expanding and improving our services to put you in control of your time by providing applications and services when, where, and how you need them.

    I am on on disability and social security would like to know how much can I make being on these resources. just part time since I can’t sit to long or stand to long can you let me know

    I am contemplating TRYING to return to work, however, I am currently receiving “temporary SS disability” benefits, due to complications left over from cancer. I am very scared and have been turned down by several companies, including the one that I was working at when I became disabled,. How much can I make and still qualify for temporary benefits? will they be cut-off immediately? How does this work? The company that is thinking about giving me a try is not a “work-incentive” employer.

    how does SSI know my income… W2 and pay check stubs show a different amount.

    • Vonda V.

      Hi Ranee, thank you for the question. Because the monthly amount of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefit is based, in part, on the income available to you, it is important to have your pay stubs and report your wages monthly to prevent an overpayment. See Reporting Wages When You Receive Supplemental Security Income for more information.

    My spouse is receiving Disability SS. I am still employed and contemplating early retirement at 62. I’m going to use bogus numbers in my equation. Let’s say I receive $1,200 monthly and my husband receives $2,000 do I get according to the scale 33.7% of his to bring my benefit up? Or, does the same spousal rule apply up to 50% of the greater one only if the 50% is greater than my benefit? The 50% would be $1000. and that is less than my benefit so I would not get anything from his??

    • Vonda V.

      Thanks for the question, Dee. Your benefit as a spouse can be equal to one-half of your husband’s full retirement amount only if you start receiving those benefits at your full retirement age. If you begin to receive benefits at age 62 or prior to your full retirement age, your benefits are reduced. The reduction factors are permanently applied to all of the benefits you qualify for once you opt to start benefits at age 62 or at any time prior to your full retirement age.

      Remember, if you qualify for your own retirement benefits and for benefits as a spouse, we always pay your own benefits first. If your benefits as a spouse are higher than your own retirement benefits, you will get a combination of benefits equaling the higher spouse benefit.

      See our Retirement Planner: Benefits For Your Spouse for more information. Also, to compute the effect on your benefit amount if you file for early retirement as well as to compute the effect on your spouse’s benefits if you file for early retirement, check out our Early or Late Retirement Calculator and our Benefits for Spouses Calculator.
