Increase on my SSDI Benefit?

Hi,

Friends told me that if my father passed away then my ssdi will increase? I understand he worked many years than me.

True?

Hi there,

Hi there,
Potentially. If you are on disability benefits and your father passed, you could receive survivor's benefits under his account. You will be eligible for up to 50% of his benefits. Keep in mind that you cannot receive these if you are married, however.

I am on SSDI and would like

I am on SSDI and would like to sell my house as I am unable to keep up with the maintenance and taxes. Will this be considered income? Will it effect my benefits? I am 64 unable to collect Social Security until 66.

Hi Pas,

Hi Pas,
SSDI benefits have no income limits, so if you are getting SSDI, then there would be no change in your benefits.

I received a fully favorable

I received a fully favorable decision for SSDI I calculated the earned work credits that I had and came up with a figure of $1166.00 I have received 4 months of payments so far of $657.00 per month after they take out for medical. I think there is a problem here.

Hi there,

Hi there,
There may be! I would contact the SSA to confirm what they calculated for your work credits.

Hello, I was approved and

Hello, I was approved and have been receiving ssdi payments since 02/2014. How can I have my benefits evaluated for an increase. Also i was working part-time upon my approval which now I'm not. Will i be evaluated for the time that I worked while receiving benefits.

Hi Bernard,

Hi Bernard,
SSDI benefits may not be eligible for any increases as they are based off of your work record.
