An SSDI work incentive, where subsidy and special conditions takes into consideration the need for extra assistance, a reduced production rate, frequent breaks, or fewer job duties than co-workers without disabilities in a similar job. SSA uses a subsidy and/or special condition in assessing earnings that can be attributed directly to the individual and the earnings potential if those supports were not in place. SSA adjusts the value of the income by deducting the cost attributed to the extra help or special condition that each person experiences when determining the SGA.
