To receive social security disability benefits you cannot be engaged in what’s called substantial gainful activity. Substantial gainful activity means you can’t be earning over a set amount. Typically at about this time in 2019 that’s between $1000 and $1100 per month. If you’re receiving more income than that per month you will be denied social security disability benefits. So if you’re working you want to try to keep working but know that if you’re going to apply for social security disability benefits you’re not going to win if you’re earning more than about $1100 per month.
Do I need to quit my job to receive disability benefits?
