How Many Hours Can My Son Work Without Jeopardizing His Benefits?

My son was involved in a bad traffic accident in 2007 that rendered him disabled. Since then he's had 25 surgeries and is only now at a point where he wants to try and work part-time. My understanding is that he is limited to 45 hours/month without jeopardizing benefits, but what about the wage or hourly rate? Is that established, or what?

Hi,

Will My Benefit Rate Rise When I Reach Age 62?

I recieve social security for having both hips replaced when i gt to 62 will i get a raise because im at the retirement age

Hi,

No, turning age 62 will have no effect on your benefit rate. Qualifying for SSDI essentially entitles you to start receiving the equivalent of your full retirement age (FRA) Social Security benefit early. If you remain eligible for SSDI until you reach FRA, your SSDI benefits simply convert to regular Social Security retirement benefits at the same rate.

Should This Be Happening To Me?

I stopped working in 1995 due to cardiac arrhythmias and began receiving SSDI benefits in 1996. In 1999 I had 2 unsuccessful ablations, fast forward to 2009, arrhythmias became worse due to scarring from the previous ablations. Cardiologist I saw told me I would get used to it and as long as I wasn't passing out the best thing I could do is try to ignore it, if I passed out they would try a pacemaker, but some of the arrhythmias (there are 4 different ones at this point) will not be corrected with a pacemaker.

Would My SSI Increase Because I Have Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Larry do you think they would raise my SSI CIZ I HAVE Rheumatoid arthritis please let me know ok

Hi,

I'd need more information to properly answer your question. If you're receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), then you're either at least age 65 or you've been determined by Social Security to be either blind or disabled. So, an additional disability wouldn't cause your benefit rate to increase.

Why Can't I WIthdraw The Conversion Of My Disability Benefits To Retirement Benefits?

I received disability benefits which were converted to retirement benefits less than a year ago. I would like to withdraw those benefits so they can grow until age 70. I understand that a withdrawal request when an automatic conversion is involved is governed by GN 00206.001 F, which incorporates by reference GN 00206.005A. The latter provision itemizes the types of benefits that must be repaid upon a WD request when an automatic conversion is involved and, importantly, does NOT include disability benefits among the itemized benefits that must be repaid.

Can I Receive SSDI Benefits?

My husband died 16 years ago and I received survivor benefits. My youngest son will be turning 18 next year. I am 47 and the last benefits I received were in May of 2018. Last year I had surgery on my foot that has left my foot and leg with severe nerve, vascular and muscle damage. I have not worked and received a paycheck since 2003 but before that I worked as a Registered Nurse. My full time work was caring for our children after my husband died.

Hi,

Will My SSDI Payments Be Affected If I Sell My Home And Keep The Funds?

I'm 63 and was wondering if i sell my home and am on ssdi will the equity from the home sales affect my ssdi pmts if i keep the funds

Hi,

No, selling your home and keeping the proceeds would have no effect on your Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits unless you were a realtor and you sold your home in the course of your business.

If you were receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI), which is a needs based program administered by Social Security, then selling a home and keeping the proceeds could make you ineligible for SSI.
