If you are on Social Security Disability benefits or are about to file for Social Security Disability benefits because you are disabled, and too disabled for all but a minimum of gainful employment, you need to know that the Social Security Administration will be making changes for the coming year.
Every year the Social Security Administration makes changes to Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI) and to the rules that govern how you can get those benefits. For instance, the threshold in 2017 was raised for Substantial Gainful Activity to $1,170.00 per month. In order to collect Social Security Disability benefits (SSDI), you cannot be employed and earning more than the $1,170.00 threshold. The benefit to you as an injured and disabled worker is that you can work and still be eligible for benefits.
