Can You Get Kicked Off Disability?

You could get kicked off disability for a few different reasons.

It took you some time to start receiving disability, but thankfully, you finally got it and you’ve had peace of mind when it comes to your finances. However, now you’re worried about getting kicked off disability. Is it possible?

The truth of the matter is that you can get kicked off SSDI and SSI disability if a few circumstances apply. If you think that you may be in danger of losing your benefits, it’s crucial to get in touch with an SSDI and SSI lawyer as soon as possible.

What Are Continuing Disability Reviews?

Around every three years, the Social Security Administration will conduct a Continuing Disability Review (CDR) to see if you still meet eligibility requirements for your income for disability benefits or if your condition has improved and you can now go back to work and start earning money again.

The time between CDRs can be longer or shorter depending on what kind of injury you suffered from and your expected recovery time, as well as your age. For instance, if you suffered from an injury that wasn’t that serious, your CDR could happen before the three-year mark. If you’re over 50, it’s likely your condition will not improve, so the CDR will happen every seven years.

Reasons You Could Lose Benefits

You may lose your benefits if you make too much income. The Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA) limit for 2021 is $1,310 a month for non-blind people. Additionally, if your medical condition has improved and you can work, then you could get kicked off benefits. If you are arrested or imprisoned, you’ll lose your benefits as well.
