Will Social Security Stop My Benefits If I Sell Shares In A Company?

I'm receiving desability. I own shares in a company. I want to know if. i cash them will SS stop paying me The desability?


Assuming that you are drawing Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits and not Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the answer is no. Sale of stock in a company is not considered as earned income, so it would have no effect on your entitlement to SSDI benefits.

Can I Work When My Disability Benefits Convert To Regular Social Security?

I am on disability. I turn 65 in Dec. I think i switch over to social security then. I am so far in debt from trying to live on disability and paying high insurance rates for supplemental and before medicare high deductible. As much as my drs dont want me to work and its gping to be hard, i take lots of pain meds. i have to get my debt down. When it switches over can i work? I have a student loan to that is deferred right now. It might open when it changes to social security, unfortunately.
