Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - Return To Work


Next »



Returning to work while receiving SSI can be a minefield of problems unless you plan carefully and keep Social Security informed at every step of the way.

Inform Social Security immediately when you return to work, preferably in a manner that gives you proof you informed Social Security.

As long as you continue to receive any SSI benefit, Social Security will request information about wages if you work for an employer, or a combination of income and expenses if you are self employed. Keep track of the information SSI will ask for so you don't have to waste precious time later reconstructing the information. Send it to Social Security on schedule.

Keep in mind that "Section 1619" provides if you are receiving SSI when you return to work, the SSI income limit will be waived so you can continue to keep Medicaid if it helps you work. (To learn more, see: Section 1619.)

Before actually returning to work, make sure you understand how it will affect your government and private benefits. See Returning to Work.)
