* Work for nine months of work at the Substantial Gainful Activity level ($1,180/month in 2018)
404.1520(a)(4)(i-v).2 The hearing officer must determine: (1) whether the claimant is engaged in substantial gainful activity; (2) whether the claimant suffers from a severe impairment; (3) whether the impairment meets or equals a listed impairment contained in Appendix 1 to the regulations; (4) whether the impairment prevents the claimant from performing previous relevant work; and (5) whether the impairment prevents the claimant from doing any work considering the claimant's age, education, and work experience.
* The child must not be working and earning more than the Substantial Gainful Activity limit ($1,180 a month in 2018 and $1,220 in 2019).
A person is disabled for the purposes of SSI and disability benefits if they are unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to a medical, mental or physical impairment which can be expected to result in death, or which has lasted, or can be expected to last, for a continuous period of at least 12 months, Payson explained in the decision.
Disabled people on Social Security Disability Insurance are allowed to earn a certain amount of money per month below what is called a Substantial Gainful Activity level of earnings and not have it put them into a nine-month trial work period that could eventually result in the termination of their monthly SSDI benefit payments.
Disabled taxpayers must furnish proof that they are unable to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to physical or mental impairment that is either terminal or expected to be long-term and indefinite.
As originally designed, SSDI benefits were intended for disability-insured Americans ages 50-65 who were deemed unable "to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which must be expected to result in death or to be of continued and indefinite duration." In recognition of the fact that work disability is a construct that arises out of the interaction between a person and his or her work environment (and thus is not entirely medical in its origin), non-medical factors such as an applicant's "education, training, and work experience" were included as relevant considerations in the disability determination process.
Prior to the program's introduction, beneficiaries faced a discontinuous drop in benefits if they earned a dollar above the substantial gainful activity (SGA) threshold.
The employment rate among working age Social Security beneficiaries (who must meet a more stringent definition of disability: having a medically determined impairment lasting at least one year, or resulting in death, and unable to engage in substantial gainful activity) is even lower, 12.1 percent in 2007 (data from the Social Security Administration Ticket Research File; Mamun, O'Leary, Wittenburg, & Gregory, 2011).
In order to qualify for disability benefits from social security in America, "individuals must have an impairment, either medical, psychological, or psychiatric in nature, that keeps them from being able to do substantial gainful activity." This last term means substantial work; the definition is quite broad.
Your impairment must also be severe enough to prevent you from performing any "substantial gainful activity" or, in other words, the work you were doing when you became disabled or any other work.
Isaacs' disability, and in consideration of his continued business activity, he could not show that his condition was "preventing substantial gainful activity." See Regulations Section 1.72-17A(f)(2).
