Substantial Gainful Activity and Social Security Disability Benefits
October 27, 2015
To be eligible for Social Security Disability Benefits, you must be unable to engage in substantial gainful activity. This requires one to be prevented from performing both substantial work activity and gainful work activity. Substantial work activity involves doing significant physical or mental activity. Gainful work activity is the kind of work usually done for pay or profit, whether or not a profit is realized.
Federal regulations set a monthly substantial activity amount each year. For 2015 the amount is $1,090. If your gross earnings are above that amount, after subtracting out impairment related work expenses, you are engaged in substantial gainful activity. The amount of substantial gainful activity is higher for blind claimants.
