Special SSI Payments for Individuals Who Work - Section 1619(a)

SSI benefits payments as a result of gross wages and/or net earnings from self-employment being less than the monthly threshold for SSI.

Your eligibility for SSI will continue for as long as you meet the basic eligibility requirements and the income and resource tests. SSA will continue to figure your SSI payment amount in the same way as before. If your state provides Medicaid to persons on SSI, you will continue to be eligible for Medicaid.
