Ssdi And Stock/investments


Raven

Question

I have been playing around buying and selling stocks on the internet a couple times a week - I do not think profits from this offset or impact SSDI or I may be wrong- anyone know anything about this? What about gambling winnings or rental income- any comments welcomed

Thanks

Raven

Social Security is only concerned with earned income not money gained by lottery winnings, gambling, life insurance, sale of property, gains made in the stock market, or money loaned to you by Uncle Bill. Social Security does have a Ticket to Work program where you can earn up to $830.00 a month (give or take $10 here or there) without interferring with your SSDI. However, if you are 100% IU with the VA, my suggestion would be you should not be working, hence the title "Individual Unemployability." IU is not about how much you can earn, but rather can you engage in substantial gainful employment. If the VA feels you can work, then IU will be stopped. People will say there is a magic amount of money you can earn before the VA flags you. However, I have seen guys earn a $1,000 and get called in, and I have seen other earn $20,000 and never get called in. Although I would not risk earning $20,000 to find out if VA will or won't.

The key to either the VA and Social Security is W-2 or 1099 job related EARNED INCOME!!!! Any monies not W-2 or 1099 will not be considered as earned income.

That may be so, but he can't get SSDI, least wise not without committing perjury.

The only thing SSA worries about is "earned income". Income from stocks is passive income and does not count. So you could, indeed, be a millionaire and retire because of disability and get SSDI.

To get SSI (Supplemental Security Income) you may not have resources in excess of $2000, or $3000 if married.

To get SS disability then you may not make over $830 per month and has no limit on the amount of your resources.

So, in re-reading the thread I find that I am wrong, assuming that everyone was talking about SS disability payments.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
