One thing many people who apply for or are receiving Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits struggle with is earning income without affecting their eligibility for SSDI. If you earn over $1,130 for disabled people and $1,820 for blind recipients per month, your application may be denied if you applied for benefits, and the amount you receive may be reduced if you already receive payments from the agency. However, you still have to pay for living expenses while you are waiting to be approved and/or the amount you receive may not be enough to sustain you.
