    The benefits you receive will continue until you are no longer a minor child.

    Yes they will. They have a formula in how they do it, and the amount you’re making will determine how much of a cut.

    Here’s the deal though, a job is probably going to end up making you more than the SSI, so don’t just throw out the idea of getting a job because it will cut your benefits.

    You say that you receive “SSI,” but children of disabled parents don’t get any “SSI” (unless the children are disabled, in which case they’re not getting their parents’ SSI, they’re getting their own). The only program that provides benefits to a child benefit based on his parent’s disablity is “Social Security Disability Insurance,” or “SSDI.” You are getting the family benefit portion of your Dad’s SSDI.

    SSDI does not care how much money you make. You can work and receive it at the same time.

    If you want to confirm this, call the SSA at (800) 772-1213, and they’ll explain it all to you.
