How Social Security understands gainful income

When people in California apply for Social Security Disability benefits, they have typically been forced to leave their jobs due to a serious, long-term disability. In order for the Social Security Administration to approve a benefits application, people must have substantial mental or physical limitations that prevent them from engaging in work, known as substantial gainful activity. This term is linked to a specific amount of monthly income, although that number can be reset from time to time. For 2019, the substantial gainful activity amount is $1,220 each month. This marks a $40 increase over the 2018 amount.
