"substantial gainful activity" is defined by social security to mean more than $1,040 per month in earnings, for the year 2013.
Does the Administrative Law Judge have additional conditions or rules?
Well, the alj will go by the definition of substantial gainful activity, but they will also look to the type of work your daughter is performing to see if they believe she could do more.
It's hard to get approved for disability or SSI while you are still working. It's possible, but you typically need the help of an attorney
An attorney is very inexpensive, and their fees are limited by law. They typically don't charge you anything until your case is successful.
Thanks. The key appears to be "if the ALJ thinks that she can do more." She has to work to support herself and is not making it on part time. she's attempted to work two full time jobs and couldn't keep up with the deamnds of either of the jobs in which she has community college training.
I'm so sorry to hear that.
There's a lot of room for interpretation, which makes things difficult.
