Will My Indiana Social Security Disability Benefits Go On Forever?
Many people rely on Social Security Disability Insurance and/or Supplemental Security Income benefits for survival. Its not a truckload of money and many Indiana Social Security disability recipients find it difficult to make ends meet with only their disability checks from the Social Security Administration (SSA). So if you are receiving disability payments and wonder if they will ever stop you are probably not alone.
If you are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance payments and your disabling condition is as severe as it was when you first were granted benefits and you are not working or receiving income up to a substantial gainful activity amount chances are your payments will probably continue. Although, you should not be surprised if your case is reviewed on a regular basis to determine your eligibility.
If you are receiving Supplemental Security Income payments the above criteria applies, but there is an additional aspect of continuing benefits with regard to resources. Supplemental Security Income payments have a financial element along with the severity of your disability and substantial gainful activity. As with SSDI claims, SSI claims can be regularly reviewed to determine continuing eligibility.
