Dear Larry: I'm 62, have worked my entire life, expected to wait till 70 to retire. Had accident 6 months ago, totally disabled at moment but doing better month by month and expect to return to some kind of part time employment in next 6-9 months when finished treatment. LTD insurer through employer insisting I apply for SSDI now to reduce their monthly obligation. If SSDI is approved, how will it affect the amount of my retirement benefit at 66 or 70? Also, can I accept SSDI for only 12-18 months then stop it when I return to work?
Hello I just applied for social security and been out of work since 2009 but just got hired for a partime job yesterday should I report this to them now because my benefitis like approve yet for my major depression condition
Yes, if you've filed for Social Security disability benefits you are required to report any changes in your work status.
HI: I Became disabled at 61. I finally got my SSD a year and a half later.
I'm now 64. May I ask you what one word I can say to SS that will increase my benefits
by a possible $500 or more a month?!
Thanks. Hope to hear from you!
I know of no such word.
After being at 80% VA disability from Agent Orange for several years and now at 100% VA disability as of 5 October 2017 from PTSD, etc - am I eligible for SSDI? I am a Vietnam vet and my age is 76.
thanks in advance,
I’ll be 63 in Feb 2018. I’ve been on disability since 2012 but only receive $797/mo. I’m forced to live with my son and his wife due to my income. When will I be able to file for my regular social security so that I can possibly have enough income to live on my own?
I am waiting for my disability hearing any suggestions or advice while I am waiting for my case to be assigned a judge.
I saw a post that is close to my situation - but not quite the same.
I have been disabled since 2010 and am on SSDI. I will be 65 in December. I have an opportunity to become a travel agent. Although working with a host agency, I'd really be self-employed and any income would result in a 1099. I'm not likely to earn income, or much any way, until at least a year or so. At which point I'll be 66.
My husband has been on SS Disability since 2011. It will convert to Retirement this month. We would like to fill out a SS Form 521 and withdraw his retirement, but are unsure what to say on the form as to the reason for withdrawing.

Taxes are withheld from Social Security benefits only if you request the withholding (https://www.ssa.gov/planners/taxwithold.html).
