  1. I am having difficulty finding how much I can make while working with ssdi for 2019 last year the amount was 850 per month before it is counted as a trial work month. since there was an increase this year has this amount gone up? where can I see this in writing?

    • Hi, Donna. If you are referring to Social Security disability benefits, special rules allow you to work temporarily without losing your monthly Social Security disability benefits. After your nine-month trial work period, we still provide a safety net that allows you to work another three years risk free. During those three years, you can work and still receive benefits for any month in which your earnings do not exceed a certain limit. For 2019, those limits are: $2,040 for blind individuals; or $1,220 a month if you are not blind. In 2019, For more information on working while receiving Social Security disability benefits, click here.
      Whether you are receiving Social Security or SSI, you may be able to work. Learn more information by reading our publication, “Working while Disabled- How We Can Help”. We hope this helps.

  2. To SSA Public Affairs:

    When I first tried My WR this spring for SSDI, the Help Desk asked for my employer’s taxpayer ID number, created an active record for the employer, and I was then able to enter my biweekly gross. Went off without a hitch.

    This month, the Help Desk closed the prior employer’s file, but failed to open an active one for my current employer. Instead, they took down the dates I left my prior and started my current work, then just forwarded them to my field office, who in turn sent a paper SSA-821. This defeats the purpose of online reporting and puts more workload on the FO. Now I call the Help Desk and they won’t even try to address my issue, but forward me to Customer Service with a 1-3/4 hour wait, for what I’ve no idea.

    The only reason I can think of for having the Help Desk set up the employer record is to link it right away with a central corporate address or the online verification that some employers use. The online system should should allow for stating when one specifically started and stopped work, and at least for simple cases, negate the need for filing a paper 821.

    I also feel that when we log in, we should see our prior reports listed, even if the data is frozen. We do receive confirming emails, but it makes it harder at a glance to know when or what amounts you’ve been reporting.

  3. I was wondering if SSA checks the wage info at the end of the year. I made a mistake in 2018 in that when I figured her wages I came up with her total to be $27,000 but her SS wages list as $20,000.
    I also believe that in the past her income I listed was $22.000 but having not look at her past years W2 I am pretty sure that her SS amount would have been less.
    Thank you

  4. Hello, I transferred FROM SSDi to full retirement benefits as I am now of age.
    I only work about 3K bucks worth a year, do I need to report this or what?

  5. I am filing income taxes and I want report Social Security benefit and I have SSA-1099 but need address for social security ID

  6. This is an absolute crock. You may be able to report wages, but you STILL have to sit around a field office all day (or on hold at the 800 number) to add an employer for which you want to report wages.

    Don’t go telling people they can report wages online when you’re still forcing them to waste time having YOU enter the employer information.
