Outcome Payment System

Under the Outcome payment system, an Employment Network (EN) can submit a request for payment when a Ticket Holder's earnings meet or exceed the amount Social Security designates annually as Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) and the Ticket Holder enters the zero cash benefit status (i.e., is no longer eligible for a federal monthly disability check). As with the Milestone/Outcome payment system, Social Security uses two monthly SGA amounts depending on the type of disability.

In 2019: $1,220 a month for individuals with disabilities other than blindness and $2,040 a month for individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
