  •  My experience was different from what you (3+ / 0-)

    described. I was also born in 1946. I retired at 59, due to disability, and received SSDI. As part of that, there is the "Ticket to Work" program, which says that if you work no longer than 9 months, that income isn't counted. So, I worked about 8 1/2 months and quit. About 2 years later I received a letter from the SSA that said they were raising my monthly stipend (by a few dollars) because of my earned income during that 8 1/2 months. I didn't earn very much and it was for such a short period. Because of your diary, I now know that my situation was unique, but it might apply to others, so I thought I should post it. Thank you for your diary.
