There are two requirements you must meet before applying for any benefits:
First: if you are making any money, you must be making less than 1,470.00 a month before taxes, which is the limit set by Social Security for 2023. They call this “substantial gainful activity” or SGA. (If you are blind under Social Security’s rules, the limit for SGA is 2460.00 a month.) If you make less than 1470.00 then
Second, you must be unable to work enough to make SGA because of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that will last longer than a year OR result in death. If you meet both of these requirements, you should contact us to file an application for benefits.
