Part 2 of 3

How would Martha's benefits be affected by earning more if she is not in BOND?

Martha completes her TWP and finishes out her grace period months. Under current policy, if Martha continues to earn above the Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) level of $1,010 per month in 2012, she will no longer be eligible for any SSDI cash benefit.

Future Monthly Income Under Current Policy
Earnings $1,200
SSDI Benefit $0
Total monthly income $1,200
