Is there Partial Social Security Disability?

Our firm sometimes gets calls relating to Partial Disability Claims.  Sometimes a Claimant may feel they are eligible for this because they are no longer able to perform a previous job, are now working at a much-reduced rate of pay, or will be out of work for a few months due to their medical conditions. 

With Social Security there is no Partial Disability, you are either disabled or not disabled, unlike VA (Veterans Administration) and Workers Compensation claims, which have a doctor give a PIR (Permanent Impairment Rating) stating the percentage of disability the person may have.

You are still able to work a part-time job while collecting benefits or while going through the Disability process as long as you do not exceed SGA (Substantial Gainful Employment) which is $1,260 gross a month for 2020 for non blind individuals and $2,110 for blind individuals.  (This amount changes slightly every year)  If you exceed this amount for a period of time your Social Security Claim will be dismissed based on the fact that you are exceeding SGA or you can even end up owing Social Security for the months that you have been overpaid.

Being able to work part-time does not mean that you are not disabled; because Social Security determines if you can work on a full-time continuous basis.  The ability to only work a part-time job does benefit a lot of these Claimants who can still supplement their income while collecting their benefits.  This is especially helpful to those who have low benefit amounts and need the funds to support themselves.
