If you receive SSDI (Title II) benefits based on your own earnings record, your spouse and/or children may also be eligible to receive benefits based on your record. However, in most circumstances no more than a total amount called the Family Maximum can be paid regardless of the number of persons entitled to benefits on your Social Security record.
If others receive benefits based on your earnings record, your work activity will affect their benefits. If you work and have countable earnings that exceed the Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) level, your Social Security benefits will stop after you complete your Trial Work Period and your Grace Period -- as will the benefits of any others who receive benefits based on your record.
