Blind Work Expense (BWE) Calculation
For Earned Income Only
If you are blind, Social Security allows certain expenses to be deducted
from your wages when calculating your SSI eligibility and payment amount.
A list of BWE expenses can be found in the
SSA Red Book
at SSI Spotlight on Impairment-Related Work Expenses
Please note this calculator is for estimating only. Social Security will
make the official determination when you report your wages.
