ACWDL 08-50: Increase in substantial gainful activity from $940 per month to $980 per month effective January 1, 2009, for non-blind individuals (11/18/2008)

The federal SGA amount will increase to $980 effective January 1, 2009. Counties will retroactively redetermine Medi-Cal eligibility based on disability if a case has been denied erroneously due to a delay in implementing the new SGA amount. SGA rules do not apply to blind individuals, Medi-Cal beneficiaries who return to work after disability has been approved, or to applicants of the Medi-Cal 250% Working Disabled Program. [Download]
