Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - Return To Work

When Do I Tell Social Security About My Return To Work?

Next » « Previous


Tell Social Security as soon as you start work!

If you don't tell Social Security about your work activities, it can create all sorts of financial problems for you down the line. It may take a long time to catch up to you because Social Security can be slow to process  earnings and tax reports. But Social Security will catch up eventually - and that can hurt.  We know of people who did not report work earnings to Social Security and ended up having to pay back as much as $12,000 once Social Security processed information they had.  You don't need that problem when you're starting to get back on your feet.

To avoid the pain of receiving and spending money that SSA is going to demand back, keep accurate and current records so you will know if you are overpaid and can set that money aside to repay when Social Security requests it.
