My daughter qualified for disability payments from SS. Several years later due to services she landed a job where she earns a little over minimum wage. Now SS is saying the last 7 months she made too much money and did not qualify.
The local SS office several years ago said she could get a job and still receive benefits. What happened?

Yes, she can earn "some" wages, and still get "some" benefits, but
usually benefits are reduced or stopped depending on how much she earns.

Some reading here may help you start to understand. See page 4 & 5
especially.

She should contact the local SS office and meet with them to understand
what's happening.

Good luck.........
