Social Security Disability

The Social Security system provides a monthly disability check to certain individuals who have worked long enough under the Social Security system and are totally disabled as per the definition in the Social Security Act. The disability must last or be expected to last at least 12 months or to result in death.

The Social Security Act defines "disability" as "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

There are many things that could result in termination of your benefits. The most common is when the individual's medical condition improves to a degree that the person becomes able to perform substantial gainful work activity. Another situation is when an individual actually returns to substantial gainful work activity. A disabled person might obtain some additional education or training that would allow them to return to work in a less physically demanding job. Finally, a disabled worker receives disability benefits until their 65th birthday or their full retirement age, at which time the benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits.
