I would not recommend doing it if you are semi-functional, able to work at all or anything other than paralyzed. The government limits your income to $2,000 or less at all times if you get it, putting you in a poverty trap for life. Also, if you medically improve, you could end up OWING the government money, like $5,000. Trust me, it is not a real blessing.

That is not true.  But if collecting SSI, you do need to report what you earn if you are under age 65.

The Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program pays benefits to disabled adults and children who have limited income and resources.

Reporting Wages for Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

If you receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and you or your deemor (e.g. your ineligible spouse or parent(s) with whom you live) work, then either you or your representative payee must report the gross wages to Social Security. You should consistently report wages during the first six days of the month to help prevent overpayments and underpayments.

Because SSI is a needs-based program for people who are aged, blind, or disabled, the amount you can receive is based, in part, on the income available to you. Generally, the more income available to you, the less the SSI payment will be.

You can report wages by visiting, calling, or writing your local Social Security Office. You should ask about our options to use the automated toll-free SSI Telephone Wage Reporting Service, the free SSI Mobile Wage Reporting Smartphone app, or the my Social Security online wage reporting tool.

If you want to report wages using our telephone service or Smartphone app, please contact your local Social Security office and speak to one of our representatives.
