Substantial Gainful Activity

Social Security regulations provide specific definitions in regard to what constitutes "disability" within the Social Security statute. One part of that definition deals with the inability to perform "Substantial Gainful Activity" within the legal definition. A presumption that the activity is "gainful" in that it amounts to more than $1010 a month for the calendar year 2011. Although the definition of "gainful" is not as clear, the term is used to decide whether someone is engaging real work.
