SSDI appeal and reinstatement

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Wed, 08/10/2016 - 12:27

I recently lost my benefits because I earned more than the allowed maximum. Is there an appeal process whereby I can be reinstated ?
In a 5 month span, I earned , in aggregate, +/- $3,900 over the allowed max.

Hi there,
The SSA does allow SSDI recipients to earn more than the SGA limits in something called a "Trial Work Period". If you're still otherwise eligible for benefits, then you may be able to appeal their decision.

A notice of revised decision arrived Dec 3, stating That my disability is continuing. I would like to know, how long does it take for SSA to continue payments?The local and national phone help were no help at all.

Hi Chryanne,
They may have included a date for your disability benefits to resume, in the letter, if they have not they may send a letter letting you know when they resume.
