If your father is receiving SSD benefits based upon his past work then your income will have no effect. If he is receiving SSI then household income may have some impact upon his benefit payments.

I agree with Mr Pont. You also need to know that your benefits are subject to an Earnings Test and can be reduced if you earn over a threshold amount that usually increases each year. That amount is $15,720 for 2016 and if you are fortunate enough to earn over that amount, your benefits will be reduced $1 for every $2 that you earn over that limit. So long as your earnings for the year are less than the Earnings Test amount, your benefits will not be reduced.
