Part-Time Work May Qualify as SGA -- Top 53 Occupations that Need Inquiry

The incidence of full-time work is an important consideration in the ability to perform substantial gainful activity at step five of the sequential evaluation process.  We operate under the agency policy that a claimant must have the ability to perform sustained work activity on a full-time or equivalent schedule in order to have the capacity to engage in substantial gainful activity.

That observation does not mean that part-time work does not count.  If a claimant has a residual functional capacity for full-time work and part-time work meets that assessment and provides an income that meets the threshold of substantial gainful activity, then that occupation counts in the march to significant numbers of jobs.

An example illustrates the point.  Vocational experts identify cashiers with regularity.  The occupation typically provides less than a full-time schedule.  Cashiers have a median wage of $10.11 per hour.  A full-time schedule of 173 hours per month would exceed the substantial gainful activity floor.  The current substantial gainful activity floor rests at more than $1,180 per month.  To exceed $1,180 per month, the median cashier must work in excess of 116.72 hours per month on average over the course of a year.  That equates to 27.15 hours per week.  Without data, it is irresponsible to assume that part-time cashiers will earn more than $14,160 per year.  Consider the following 53 occupations that have full-time work in 25% or less of the jobs as they exist in national economy based on incumbent (workers) surveys:
