Can social security find out if i make money online like ebay?
I'm on SSI and i want to do ebay as a weekly side hustle.

Not sure what "do ebay" means to you. If you're simply selling off stuff that you already own, then it may have different "income" issues (and for tax purposes) than if you're buying and selling commercially via eBay.
Yes, there are ways for "social security" to find out about unreported income, assuming you're making enough for it to catch their attention somehow.

They won't care. You are entitled to sell on eBay and receive ssi.

It’s possible for them to find out and if they do and you don’t report it you will have to pay them back.

Yes, it's reported to the IRS so they will be able to know.

To sell you must give your SSN to eBay. The government can easily subpoena eBay and Paypal's records.

Yes, they can. They'll be keeping an eye on your bank account, and seeing income from a single source multiple times will make them suspicious.
