Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA)

Substantial gainful activity (SGA) describes a level of work activity and earnings and is one of the factors used by the Social Security Administration to determine eligibility for disability benefits. “Substantial” work involves significant physical or mental activities or a combination of both. “Gainful” work activity is that which is performed for pay or profit. To be eligible for disability benefits, an individual must be unable to engage in SGA.
