Length of Social Security Disability Payments
Once the Social Security Administration approves your claim for disability benefits, it is intended that you will receive these benefits permanently, allowing for a stable income for those who undoubtedly deserve it. There are, however, a few circumstances that could result in the termination of your social security disability benefits.
“Substantial Gainful Activity”: The SSA may cease payments if they determine you are participating in substantial gainful activity. This activity is typically defined as working full-time, working part-time with $1,040 gross monthly pay, or attending college or vocational school full-time.
Condition Improvement: The SSA may determine that your condition has improved and that your disability no longer hinders your ability to work. The Administration conducts periodic reviews of cases in order to make sure you are still in need of disability benefits. They review whether your disability still hinders your ability to work, whether you have continued treatment, and whether you are following the instructions of your healthcare provider.
Incarceration: If you are incarcerated or institutionalized for over 30 days, your disability benefits will cease.
