Can I work and still be approved for disability if I have asthma?




 
Yes, you can be approved for disability with asthma if you are working. It depends, of course, on how much you are working and earning.

Social Security’s definition of disability has a work-earnings requirement. The definition requires that you not be earning more than the SGA limit if you are filing for disability. SGA is an earnings limit that Social Security determines to be self-supporting. This amount generally increases incrementally each year.

If you are working and earning over the SGA monthly earnings limit, your disability claim will be denied without ever being sent for a medical determination. Social Security is very strict with regard to this limit, in fact, an individual who has a terminal condition would be denied if they earning over the SGA limit.

If your asthma has prevented you from earning over the SGA monthly limit for 12 continuous months or you expect that it will prevent you from working for 12 continuous months, you should file for disability.
