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.
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.
SSDI beneficiaries generally lose their cash assistance and disability status once earnings reach the substantial gainful activity level, about $1,040 per month (SSA, 2013b), though some earnings can be disregarded for work incentive programs.
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.
Isaacs' disability, and in consideration of his continued business activity, he could not show that his condition was "preventing substantial gainful activity.
One possibility would be to require five years of work at the level that Social Security considers to represent substantial gainful activity, currently $1,000 a month.
An increase in the Substantial Gainful Activity amount for individuals with disabilities, other than blindness, from $980 to $1,000 for 2010.
Disability is defined as the inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or that has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.
Analyses were conducted separately for the groups because these two groups differ in their levels of visual impairment and how SSA roles are applied to them (for example, only those classified as statutorily blind receive special benefits, such as a higher substantial gainful activity [SGA] level for SSDI beneficiaries and higher "blind work expenses" for SSI beneficiaries).
