    A Question about SSI and SSDI

    I was on SSI but that was over 20 years ago. When I became employed I lost it of course. I know that back then, the government took $2 away for every $1 you made. What are the rules/guidelines now?

    Not sure, but I think you can make $900 gross per month without any benefit reduction.

    You'll probably find the answer at the SSA website: http://socialsecurity.gov/

      If you received enough work credits, you are now eligible for SSDI which has a monthly earning cap around $900/mo. Check out the link rdf posted. SSI has a type of formula similar to what you cited I think.

        What flicka said. If you worked enough quarters you will get significantly more money from your earned SSDI than you will from SSI.

              But yes, they still take it at a rate of $1 for every $2

                Thank you. I'm doing research and didn't really trust the SSDI/SSI website to be up front with me.
