I was told it is ok for me to work the 18 hours I am working. I told the SS guy that I don't know how much longer I can keep working those 18, but it's ok as long as I don't go over a certain amount. I have a w/c settlement this week and depending on if I get any $$$$ out of it, that, too, has to be reported. I thought I would let everyone know. All that we know about SS and how our cases work helps everyone else here.
