SS really likes seeing ppl trying to improve, get off SSI or SSDI and move on with their lives. Depending on your age and your medical condition, this might be a real possibility for some ppl but for most of us here, we need to remain on SSDI due to the chronic nature of our medical conditions. Good luck with school if you decide to go.
You are right blue if you are on ssi for mental issues like panic and anxiety and go to school full / part the ssa might say well if you can handle being around people at school than you can handle being around people at a job. Remember you filed for ssi because of mental issues, o if you can handle school you can handle a job. You can't have it both ways.
