What is Substantial Work and the Role is Plays in My Social Security Disability Process?

Substantial work is defined by Social Security rules as “physical and mental work that you’re paid to do by your employer. Work can be substantial even if you are doing it on a partSubstantial Work time basis.” The Social Security Administration looks at the kinds of job duties you are doing, your skills and experience you need to do the job and most importantly: how much you actually make.

The Social Security Administration will find that work is substantial if you have gross earning of $830 per month.

You may be self-employed. If so, the Social Security Administration considers the time and value of your work, including your role in the management of the business in deciding whether or not your work is substantial.
