Yes. In order to be found disabled by Social Security in Mississippi, you must meet the physical or mental requirements for disability as well as be incapable of performing work at the substantial gainful activity level (SGA). For 2021, the SGA level is $1,310 per month. This means that you can earn under $1,310 per month and be capable of being found disabled by Social Security if you meet the physical or mental requirements for disability. You must be found by Social Security to not be physically or mentally capable of earning more than $1,310 per month. In other words, you cannot just go work part-time and think you can get disability because you are earning under SGA level. You must also prove that you cannot physically or mentally perform enough work in order to earn at least $1,310 per month.
