Student Earned Income Exclusion
Posted in: Supplemental Security Income on September 2nd, 2011

ssiIf you are somebody you know is receiving Supplemental Security Income, it is important to be aware of all benefits that come along with being part of the program.  In the event that you are interested in earning some extra income while receiving Supplemental Security Income and are under the age of 22, you might be eligible for the Student Earned Income Exclusion clause of Supplemental Security Income.

What Is Student Earned Income?

If you or somebody that you know is under the age of 22 and is receiving Supplemental Security Income, and are also regularly attending school, you are eligible to have up to 1,640 a month excluded from your overall income for up to 6,600 per year.

With this exclusion, somebody who is attending school is encouraged to work while getting an education.  While the Social Security Administration understands that many people who are living with disabilities are unable to work full time, it is important to encourage individuals to work as much as possible and as much as they can.  The Student Earned Income Exclusion is one of the many programs that are in place to encourage young people to work as much as they can without risk of losing their disability payments.

There is a careful balance that needs to be struck between supporting individuals with disabilities and encouraging them to work as much as they can.  The Social Security Administration looks forward to working with young people to help further their educational and occupational goals while providing them with the benefits they need to succeed.
