Social Security

Social Security Disability - Duration

Generally, there is no limit to the duration of Social Security disability benefits. If you qualify, you will keep collecting Social Security Disability benefits as long as your disability condition prevents you from working. The Social Security Administration will periodically review your case to see if there has been an improvement in your disabled condition. If you are once again determined healthy enough to work, your benefits will stop. If you are still receiving benefits when you reach age 65, your disability benefit will be automatically converted to retirement benefits.
