There are a number of factors that may lead to termination or reduction of your Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, including receipt of other benefits, returning to work, improved medical condition, and more. To learn more about how your benefits may be reduced or terminated, talk to one of our Houston Social Security Disability lawyers.

Changes in your monthly benefit amount or complete termination of benefits can result from changes in your eligibility status. Though the SSA will continue to evaluate your benefits each year, regardless of if you experience a change in your eligibility status, it’s important to report any changes to the Social Security Administration (SSA).

You should tell the SSA immediately if you:

  • apply for and receive other benefits or receive a lump-sum payment, such as a divorce settlement or inheritance
  • return to work; however, SSA programs such as Ticket to Work allow you to return to work and continue to receive SSD benefits for up to nine months
  • commit a crime, including violations such as an outstanding warrant for your arrest, you are convicted of a crime, or you violate a condition of your parole

One of our Social Security Disability attorneys can answer your questions about what you should report to the SSA. Contact Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law today if you need assistance with your benefits.
