Do I need to let Social Security Administration know when I start work

Q) Do I need to let SSA know when I start work or only after my pay is over the limits. Or do I need to report monthly wages to you.

A) Each month you have to mail you pay stub to your local Social Security office. Contact your local Social Security office in setting up this account.

Do I have to report my earnings to Social Security?

Yes. If you work and get SSI, then you must report your earnings. If you have a representative payee, then your representative payee must report your earnings.

What specific earnings information do I have to report?

You need to report the following:

  • monthly gross wages (that is the amount before taxes or other deductions are subtracted);
  • if you start or stop working; increases or decreases in your wages or self–employment income;
  • if you start or stop a second or third job; work expenses related to your disability; and
  • if you are blind, any work expenses.

What earnings information does Social Security need to see?

SSA need to see:

  • every pay stub, including pay stubs for overtime, vacations, and bonuses;
  • if self–employed, copies of your Federal Income Tax Forms Schedule SE, Schedule C, Schedule C–EZ, or Schedule F;
  • receipts for work expenses related to your disability;
  • if you are blind, receipts for any work expense; and
  • receipts for expenses paid to reach your Plan to Achieve Self–Support(PASS) employment goal.

NOTE SSA will give you a “Your Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Folder” to help you keep records that we need to see (for example pay stubs).
