After being rewarded Social Security benefits, many clients ask whether they will receive their benefits forever. The answer is that if their medical condition does not improve than yes, they will receive the benefits forever. However, all beneficiaries of Social Security are subject to periodic screening. If your condition has improved than your benefits may be revoked.
Although there is no set time for Social Security to review your case, on average a case is reviewed every 3 years or 5-7 years. Reviews can be quicker is the Administrative Judge expects you to improve from your medical condition quicker.
Your Social Security benefits may also be terminated if your income exceeds the maximum amount allowed by Social Security. Often, Social Security will need a breakdown of your monthly earnings, as well as doctor’s bills and medication to continue to quality. Your Social Security disability attorney can help you gather the paperwork to maintain your benefits.
