No, you should not lose your benefits.I have started the trial work period a week ago. My employer wants me to work full time, but after 3 days, my body is already going through a crisis. I wanted to start part time to not put my body through this. I'm getting paid $21.00/HR, will I lose my benefits if I try to finish out the month, full time (if I can, physically) before resigning. I feel embarrased that I have to resign, but I'm in terrible pain.
Howdy,,,just read your post,,,I'm interested in doing the same thing...Have you been staying at the 1170$ mark?? Has anything effected your benefits?? Thanks -JohnI just started my trial work period. I got hired on as an independent contractor and will get a 1099 not a W2. I will have to pay my own taxes.
How does this effect my SGA limits?
I called Social Security and told them I was going to work. I gave them the name of the company, the address and the name of the business owner. The guy on the phone said I could make all the money I want for 9 months but then I can only make $1170 and not lose my benefits. He said they would be sending me something in the mail.
Wondering how the contractor part effects my SGA.
I worked 8 months but Social Security said I worked 9. They can’t count.Howdy,,,just read your post,,,I'm interested in doing the same thing...Have you been staying at the 1170$ mark?? Has anything effected your benefits?? Thanks -John
I am considering going into the 36 months of extended eligibility. I have used up my 9 trial months.Put the beer down, you are giving bad advice. ^^^
I work at the SSA. Please disregard what you have read from above. I have posted the regulation and there are no real exceptions to it.
If you work and make $ without reporting it, you may get caught. It is not worth it. People get caught all of the time.
@gsfowlerI am considering going into the 36 months of extended eligibility. I have used up my 9 trial months.
It is a temp federal job with an intermittent, part time full time job guaranteed for one day less than a year extendable to two years. So at best it’s a two year job.
What happens when the job ends and I am no longer working and what happens after the 36 months? Do I get re-evaluated?
I can’t get a clear answer from Social Security.
