Supplemental Security Income: Earned Income Exclusion
Posted in: Supplemental Security Income on August 31st, 2011

social-security-checkIf you or somebody that you know is receiving benefits from Supplemental Security Income, you might be wondering about the possibility of work while receiving these benefits.  After all, in the case of Supplemental Security Income, the amount of money that is given out is not very high – it is intended only to provide enough money for the most basic necessities.  It’s not intended to be able to provide for a luxurious lifestyle.

Can I Work?

The short answer is yes!  In fact, the Social Security Administration is very keen to have individuals who are receiving both Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance to get back out into the workforce.  There is a great strain on both of these programs, and helping individuals who could possibly be able to get back out into the workforce, even in a lesser capacity, is a priority.

Even though the Social Security Administration is eager to help people work, it also understands that not everybody is able to work a full-time schedule.  In order to both help people get back to work in whatever capacity they can while recognizing the need for recipients of Supplemental Security Income to continue receiving benefits, there is the earned income exclusion rule.  Essentially, if you make fewer than 65 dollars a month, this does not count against your income.  If you make over 65 dollars a month, one out of every two dollars is counted against your income.

In this way, you can work to your abilities while receiving Supplemental Security Income.  Be sure to look into work incentive programs and see what they can offer you and your loved ones!
