person using calculator On September 23, 2017, we released a new wage reporting application behind the my Social Security portal. Now, people who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits and their representative payees can report wages securely online.

It’s faster and easier than ever before for SSDI beneficiaries and their representative payees to report wages; they can avoid visiting a field office to report their wages in person and they can print or save a receipt of their report.

When you sign up or log in to your my Social Security account, you’ll have access to this application on your desktop, laptop, and mobile device. After you report your wages online, you can save or print a copy of your receipt.

This service will be available for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients in the future. SSI recipients should continue to report wages through SSI Mobile Wage Reporting, SSI Telephone Wage Reporting, or by visiting a local field office.

We’re constantly expanding and improving our services to put you in control of your time by providing them when, where, and how you need them. You can learn more about this new wage reporting service here.

    Hello, I am still waiting for my monthly increase in pay from my SSI benefits. It has been 3 months and I have not receive a sign or anything from SDI. I submitted proof of myself not receiving SDI and waiting I guess on payroll to make the adjustment. How long does this process takes.

      Hi, Wendy. Unfortunately, but for security reasons, we do not have access to personal records in this blog. Please continue working with your local office. If you are unable to visit the local office, you can call our toll free number at 1-800-772-1213 for assistance. Representatives are available Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Generally, you will have a shorter wait time if you call later in the week. Thanks.

    Hi, I’ve received SSDI benefits for a while now, working part-time when I can do so. I understand the rules and incentives related to working while receiving benefits. I’ve always wondered how you calculate monthly earnings? For example, I’ve worked in environments where, at the end of a month, I can print off the dates for a particular month (say, November 1 through November 30) and multiply by my hourly wage to provide a monthly income. I’ve also worked in environments where that type of information isn’t available and all I can submit is my pay stubs. Some paychecks bridge a month (for example, the last week of April and the first week of May are on the same pay check). Do you take that pay check, divide by 2, and then add 1/2 to April and 1/2 to May? There are some who believe that, when a person works a full year, especially in environments that are variable month-to-month (such as hospitality and retail), you take yearly income and divide by 12.

    It seems to me that, when calculating monthly earnings, Social Security ought to take into account the type of work that a person is doing, within reason. In retail, for example, it is difficult to keep hours down during the peak rush (November/December). Employers need their best workers at this time, and it’s not a good time for negotiations. On the other hand, during the rest of the year, a retailer can usually accommodate someone with a disability. Also, in January and February, hours can be very low,

    In the overall yearly picture, total income could amount to well less than the limit for either TWP or SGA, even though two months were somewhat higher than those numbers. When a person is past the TWP period, it would be hard to pay back two months of benefits, especially when earning $9/hour and working 10-15 hours year-round.

    In human service work, because of the shortage of workers (CNAs), employers constantly push employees to work more than is healthy. In both of these environments, the ADA accommodations aren’t helpful. Employers will state that it is not a reasonable accommodation to have an employee of any sort limit their hours during the high-volume November sales that are necessary for the success of the business.

    Health care employers will state that they need employees who can work as often as necessary and that it is not reasonable for patients to go without care. If an employee does not do “enough” for an employer, their is a high risk of receiving very little work in these “as-needed” situations. The days of the steady 20/hr per week jobs are gone, especially for persons with disabilities.

    I am working for a retailer seasonally at $9/hour. I need the income to survive. This pace of work is not sustainable, and I think that my well-being suffers. The problem is that it was the best that I could do in terms of finding a job. Other retailers are more demanding than the one for whom I work.

    I appreciate this forum because I have felt alone and isolated with these questions. I think that issues in the current economy on a large-scale level play out at a personal one. I find the current economic climate and availability of jobs for persons with disabilities to be difficult and disadvantageous.

    Thank you SSA for making this available. I am so tired of going into an office monthly, fill out the information on the kiosk to get a ticket and always marking the hearing impaired or deaf yes button. Only, to sit and wait as I get passed by not hearing my number called or better yet, bypassed on the overhead monitor. Can’t tell you how many times that has happened. The CSR’s response “I didn’t look at the que to see that you were HI or deaf”. You didn’t respond so Csr moved on to next number. Thank you again for allowing us SSDI receivers to able to report our wages from home.
