It all depends on the type of disability benefits you may receive.

Depending on your previous work record, you may either qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or, if you haven't earned enough work credits to qualify for SSDI, Supplemental Security Income (SSI).  If SSDI, then you may actually work for a period of time without affecting your disability cash payments, no matter how much you may earn.  After this period of time expires, the amount you may earn is limited.  

Under SSI, the rules are different. If you receive SSI, then your SSI cash payment will decrease as your income from work increases.  Likewise, if your earnings from work decrease your SSI check will increase.
