How Long Are You Eligible for Disability Benefits?

You could keep your social security disability benefits for your working life, until you retire. At retirement age, you would then start receiving Social Security retirement income or SSI for the elderly. Since social security disability benefits are designed to help pay for income when you cannot work due to a disability, you can keep receiving these benefits as long as you have a disability preventing you from working.

Periodically, you may have to get a continuing disability review (CDR) to determine whether you still qualify for benefits. You will be told when you need to get a CDR. In most cases, it will occur every three to seven years, although sometimes it may be requested yearly.

When might your benefits stop?

Your benefits will usually only stop if:

  • Your disability gets better.
    If a CDR shows your medical condition has improved to the point it impacts your social security disability eligibility, you could see an end to your benefits if your improvement allows you to return to work. However, this is generally rare since the qualification for benefits is strict and only granted in cases which improvement is unlikely.
  • You start earning enough money.
    If you can work and earn more than the substantial gainful activity (SGA) — defined as $1,130 per month in 2016 or slightly more for those who are blind — this can impact your ability to get benefits.

Once you are approved for disability benefits, it is unlikely they will be cut off. In the event they are, however, contact KBG Injury Law immediately for a consultation to find out how to appeal your case and start getting your rightful benefits back.
