Currently on SSDI and work
I know I can make only 1,170/ mo
Is tha gross or net?

Hi,

If you're working for wages the gross amount is counted, but if you're self-employed it's the net. And, the substantial gainful activity guideline in 2018 is actually $1,180, and that figure will rise to $1,220 in 2019.

Best, Jerry
