    Please help. SSDI AND SSI. 
    #1
    Ok I?ve got a legit DSM5 diagnosis. I?ve been on disability since 08.

    When I was my most happiest was when I was working 55 hours a week.

    I?m trying to find Someone who is or has been on both and went back to work.

    Can anyone tell me what to expect and what I need to do in order to keep something like insurance. Please I?m tired of rotting in my bed everyday.

    Go to your Social Security Administration. They have pamphlets on the subject.

    Or google it if you haven’t already. It’s all there.

    Tell me, do you have ssi or ssdi?

    You get Medicaid and Medicare when you're on disability. Those insurances covers most mainstream medicine.

    Good luck to you! I'm on disability too, and I know it can be very much a negative feedback loop of inactivity. I wish you the best in finding recovery and functionality.

    Oh, I was under the impression that ssd was more for physical conditions (like people in wheelchairs). I get ssi for mental problems too, but was denied ssd. Either way, it's tricky. I think you're allowed to work a certain amount with ssd or ssi, but if I remember correctly you don't get as much benefits. Don't quote me on that tho. Another thing that sucks is that if you go back to work full time you lose your benefits obviously, and if it doesn't work out you have reapply. I'm glad I finally got ssi but it does sort of trap you.

    I have ssi. $750 monthly. It covers my rent and I have a few hundred dollars a month to fuck around with.
    Recently I started to work as a cook at a high end sea food resturant and was making a good wage. At the start of each month, within 10 days I would report to my worker at the Social Security Administration how much I earned at my job. Social Security lets you keep the first $85 and then garnishes you 50 cents of every dollar you made at your job. You get your revised Ssi/Ssdi check the next month on time.
    That?s one way ssi/ssdi and a job works. I know this from experience.
    Honestly the best way to find out the truth is to go to the social security office because they have like 5 phamplets about working and still receiving insurance so you can see your psychiatrist and receive medication that you need.
    It IS possible to screw up your ssi/ssdi check permenatl by working too much. That takes like 3 years of working full time non stop.

    Definetly visits the Social security Administration office for phamplets to find out what is possible for you and to stay safe. There is a big rack of them and their free when you walk in.

    Defiantly check out the phamplet titled: The Social Security Administration Ticket to Work Program.

    Oh yea, I worked part time. If you are planning on working full time there are different rules from social security office for that.
