Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA)

SGA is the amount of monthly Earned Income an employee can make in a single month (4 weeks) and still maintain their full SSD check. If an employee makes more than the SGA in unearned income in a single month then they will no longer receive a check for SSD next month. The exceptions to this rule would be getting a subsidy letter from Fountain House Employment Resource Center. See someone in the Employment Resource Center for more information on Subsidy Letters.
