I started working making $7.25 a out hour in July 2014, made $4,000 that year. In 2015, made 13,000 and in 2016, made about 13,000. Social Security applied it as Trial work period. About seven months out
of these years in 2015 and 2016, I went over but this year my pay is only 164.00 a week. I work three days a week now. I have received notification about payments received for months I went over. Will they take money from my check to recover for seven months overworked. They say I have three years to be in this program which they say ends 2018. I have special conditions under which I work and they wanted to know. If I continue to work 21hrs. a week, am I jeorpardizing my benefits. I make about $680.00 now a month from job.
No, you should not lose your SSDI benefits when you turn 65. You should let SSA know that you are currently working below the substantial gainful activity level.
A trial work period allows you to earn any amount you able for nine months in a five year period. There is also something called an extended period of eligibility. The answer to your question will require a detailed analysis of the monthly earnings throughout this period. Since you almost of full retirement age your benefits will switch to retirement rather than disability but that would not absolve you of any overpayments.
