Can I work part time?

by | Mar 4, 2023 | SSD - Social Security Disability |

In order to be approved for social security disability, we need to prove you are unable to work full time.  So can you work part time? Yes, keeping in mind that social security eligibility is a five step process, and if you earn too much money you will be denied at step one. Social Security calculates how much work is allowed based on the wages you earn before tax, not the amount of hours you work.

So even if you only work ten hours a week, but earn $35 an hour, you will not be eligible for benefits.

In 2023 the maximum you are allowed to earn in a month (Substantial Gainful Activity) is $1,470 per month or $17,640 per year, before taxes are taken out.
