In 2010, a person making less than $1000 per month is not engaging in "substantial gainful activity." If their condition is expected to last at least 12 months, they can apply for disability benefits. Individuals who are working and disabled might have a harder time getting benefits, but they should apply as soon as they qualify. 

The Coye Law Firm wants to help you win benefits after your first application. Call our offices to speak with an attorney who can schedule you for a free consultation and guide you to a successful claim.
