    I was wondering of the my spouse was to start working would that decrease or effect my SSDI benefits.

    The SSDI benefits are from my own work history. I am NOT drawing from anyone else.

    So if my spouse starts to work is there a limit under SSDI program where I was lose money coming in?

    Thanks!

    The earnings of your spouse won't impact your SSDI. benefits.

    Nope, your spouse can work and make as much as he or she is able. That does not change your entitlement to SSDI.

    SSI and SSDI are two different programs.

    Are you 100% sure you are on SSDI?
