In addition, there will be no changes to the work incentives thresholds such as Substantial Gainful Activity (Non-Blind and Blind); Trial Work Period; or Student Earned Income Exclusion

Social Security Disability Thresholds 2010 / 2011d:
Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) Non-Blind $1,000/mo. $1,000/mo.
** Blind $1,640/mo. $1,640/mo.*
Trial Work Period (TWP) $ 720/mo. $ 720/mo.**
o SSI Federal Payment Standard:
Individual $674/mo. $674/mo.*
Couple $1,011/mo. $1,011/mo.*
o SSI Student Exclusion:
Monthly limit $1,640 $1,640*
Annual limit $6,600 $6,600* *

By law, these amounts will be unchanged in 2011 because there is no COLA.
**By law, these amounts will be unchanged in 2011 because there was a decrease in the national average wage index for 2009
