Outcome Payment System

Under the Outcome payment system, an Employment Network (EN) can submit a request for payment when a Ticketholder's earnings meet or exceed the amount Social Security designates annually as Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) and the Ticketholder enters a suspended 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 2024, the SGA is $1,550 a month for individuals with disabilities other than blindness and $2,590 a month for individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
