#5 Lose SSDIs: Getting better

If you are receiving SSDIs, then you should be aware of the ways in which you can end up losing these benefits if you are not employed when you receive these types of payments. A lot of people who benefit from these types of payments end up relying on them a lot. However, it is known that even if you are receiving SSDI as a result of a long-term disability or chronic illness, the SSA is required to conduct reviews of your case periodically, and this can end up being tense for most people.

If the doctor who sees you expects your disability to get better with time, which means you can go back to work, then the SSDIs can have an expiration date of anywhere between 6 and 18 months. However, if it is not known if you could get better, then the SSDIs are indefinite, and the SSA will review your case around every three years. If there seems to be no chance of improvement, then the review will be conducted after seven years.

Yet, if your condition improves in the meantime or you end up going back to work, you have to inform the SSA, and this will mean that you will be losing your SSDI payments.

  1. Another way to lose SS benefits (which I hope does not apply to any readers here): Move to a country that the USA does not have diplomatic relations with, such as North Korea, Iran (I think), and there are a few others.

  2. Did not know about ways we can lose Social Security. Please tell me what to look for or do.

  3. My husband and I have been married for 59 years this October. We inherited his family’s farm 30 years ago and paying taxes with very little income from it. My husband decided to sell it two years ago. I was relieved over our finances until we found out that our Social Security which would have been increased this year took a definite decrease after IRS informed Social Security about our income from the sale of the farm. With the proposed increase in SS benefits we would have been better off to have kept the farm and left it to our children. Now we are dependent on using money from the sale of the farm to live on. I know “life” isn’t fair, but it seems things never get better. just worse.

  4. I think if anyone is caught selling or stealing other peoples medicine or on benefits getting caught doing those things should lose benefits.
