I have cerebral palsy and receive SSI. From dec to April I worked as a CSR. It was a temporary project. Also walking to work from the bus became too much on my legs as well as pain in my right hand. I then try to work at shop rite but being on my feet was too much. I could barely stand. After 3 days I had to quit. This was dec. I haven't worked since Unfortunately I didn't know I had to report this. My mistake I admit that. I recently received a letter saying I must come into the office about keeping my SSI. To bring any pay stubs bank statements assets etc. the money I made went to mostly a back water bill. Am I being called in to make payment arrangements for the overpayment? Or to begin to end my benefits?
It's likely they want to discuss your work activity and income. It's unlikely they would terminate your SSI for 3 days of an unsuccessful work attempt. You may have to pay back some benefits you received because of the earned income during those 3 days.

Mr. Pham was correct in his response. This is to only go over the income you received at this point. You would get a different notice if it was to cut you off.
A three day work attempt is not a big problem. They will discuss this with you and reduce your benefit by the amount you earned in those three days less a small amount.
