Been on SSDI since earlier in the year and I want to sell some crafts to help make ends meet - would like to hear from some others on SSDI who have done so - do you just report it on your IRS taxes or do you have to notify Social Security before you start? I seriously doubt I'd even approach the limit of what you can earn with my crafts but I don't want to commit a "technical foul," so to speak.

And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. -- Colossians 3:17

Your best bet is to call your local SSA office and ask them directly. If there's a limit on what you can earn, they'll tell you what you must do.

There's NOTHING at a craft show, or on Etsy, anybody NEEDS. NOTHING.

I would definitely keep all receipts for tax time but I can recommend a website called listia it is all credit based which means there is no money and no taxes. I sell my stuff and buy all kinds of house hold things and beauty products that I would normally spend money on you can even get gift cards its a great and safe website (advertising isn't my thing trust me but I LOVE this site.)

Find everything and anything of whimsy in my etsy

I had this exact question! I'm waiting for my hearing for Social Security Income, I'll probably get it sometime this year. I think with SSI you can only make like $65 a month? Which I doubt I'd get selling my stuff, but I'm still paranoid!

I did a little research and you can make up to $1,000 a month (net).
