You have to tell them right away, like when you found out you got the job.

I think it's within ten days. Hey it's great that you are getting off of SSI, a step in a good direction good luck.

You do know that some people get ssi because they are permanently disabled right?

I would tell them ASAP. I don't know whether they will cut your benefits or not.  There might be some info on the Social Security website (if you haven't checked it out already).  I

I'm pretty sure you're supposed to notify then within 10 days of a change.

You can get SSI and work. Working does not mean she will lose her benefits.

Derp, obviously I know what it is and in OP's case she isn't permanently disabled to the point she can't work or she wouldn't be working. So is it a bad thing to congratulate someone for getting into a better situation? Or should I shame her for deciding to go out on her own?

 I realize she won't lose all of her benefit but she does stand to lose a substantial amount per their website

Working and SSI Benefits

You can begin to work and continue to receive SSI benefits as long as your wages and other resources do not exceed the SSA’s income limit for SSI; however, your monthly benefit amount will be reduced in proportion to your income.

Here's how the SSA reduces your income. If your only income is from your job, the SSA does not include the first $85 you earn toward your countable income. After the $85 adjustment, the SSA will deduct 50 cents for every dollar you earn from your monthly benefits. Here is an example of a person who earns $1,070 a month from working: $1,070 - $85 = $985 ÷ 2 = $492.50. The individual’s monthly SSI benefit amount would be reduced by $492.50.

Which if she works 20 hours a week at the wage she listed here she would only be capable of recieving about 363 dollars a month from SSI.
