Social Security Disability benefits are some of the most difficult benefits to get from the Social Security system due to the strict qualification requirements. Keeping these benefits can also be difficult because you must remain disabled per the SSA’s definition.
According to the SSA, there are quite a few situations in which you would become no longer eligible, and your benefits would stop.
Making a mistake with approval
If the SSA reviews your case and determines that it made a mistake in approving your claim, then it will fix the situation by ending your benefits. You will receive a notice and have a chance to appeal, but the SSA’s ruling is generally final if it can prove you do not meet the criteria.
One of the main rules about SSD benefits is that you must be unable to work due to your disability. If you start working again, you will lose your benefits. This includes working because you have undergone advanced treatment or training that enables you to find employment. The SSA will consider any substantial employment as disqualifying.
Lying on application
If you providing false information when applying for your benefits, it will lead to you losing the benefits. You must be entirely truthful. The SSA will eventually find out and stop your benefits immediately.
You have specific things you must do when receiving SSD benefits. If you fail to do these things, the SSA will stop your benefits.
This may include not following your doctor’s orders, refusing treatments, not providing requested information to the SSA and anything else that the SSA informs you that you must do.
