There’s rules about trial work periods and working consecutive months and stuff. I never fully understood that crap. I got awarded SSDI in about 1983. They told me about trial work periods and working full time or part-time.
To sum it up, I’ve been working almost steadily since 1983 and I’ve been through trial work periods of 9 months or 17 months, but somehow I have gotten SSDI steadily and now at age 56 I’ve reached the point where I can earn up to $1100 a month forever (according to them) and still collect SSDI. They told me if I ever went over $1100 for even just one month, I would lose my benefits. But there are even ways around that so If my boss has me work too many hours and I go over the limit, I can have my boss call Social Security up and explain that it was her fault and then I won’t lose my benefits.
Chrystal clear, right lol?
