An Ocala Social Security Disability Law Firm Attorney Looks At Substantial Gainful Activity

  • Published: May 15, 2014

You can be ruled disabled and still work. An attorney with your Ocala Social Security disability law firm explains more fully in the paragraphs below.

If You Work

Depending upon the type of work you are doing, your earnings, expenses related to your condition and the presence of any supplemental subsidy, it is possible that you may be employed and yet be eligible to be declared disabled.

Substantial Gainful Activity

If you work in a paid position that requires strenuous physical labor or complex mental tasks that you perform with little or no supervision, your job may fall under the category of substantial gainful activity. Such a job can render you ineligible for Social Security disability benefits regardless of your condition if your wages are over the current substantial gainful activity level. You must also demonstrate that you cannot meet the requirements of a sit-down, full-time position. If you are doing strenuous work part-time, the SSA will doubt your inability to work at a desk for a normal 8-hour, 5-day workweek.

The SGA Level

Your Ocala Social Security disability attorney can help you ascertain whether your wages place you above or below the substantial gainful activity level observed by the SSA. Your gross wages, adjusted and averaged with such deductions as apply are evaluated according to the levels set down in the SSA regulations. This figure is recalculated yearly, and can be found by accessing the official website of the SSA.
