Part-time earnings and disability


Q. How much money can I earn part time without negatively affecting my disability pension?

A. The maximum you can earn is 80 percent of the current rate of pay for the position you held when you retired on disability. If you exceed that amount, your disability annuity would be stopped until such time as your earnings fell below that level.
