Part 2 of 3

How would Carlos's benefits be affected by earning more if he was not in BOND?

Under current policy, if Carlos continues to work full-time, unless he has impairment-related work expenses, subsidies, or paid time off that can be deducted, his earnings would be above the Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) level of $1,010 per month, and he would no longer receive a monthly SSDI cash benefit. Therefore, his income will fall to $1,257 per month.

Future Monthly Income Under Current Policy
Earnings $1,257
SSDI Benefit $0
Total monthly income $1,257



to see how a BOND benefit offset helps Carlos earn more and still keep SSDI benefits.
