Re: Decision Posted 03-29-2012!!!
OFC, I forgot to mention that the individual can also take himself off of SSDI by telling SSA I think I am able to do SGA now and I wanna go back to work. During the 9 month TWP, you can still keep your disabled status while you test your ability to do SGA, but most people who go on SSDI stay on SSDI. For a period of 3 years if you go back to work and your earnings fall below SGA, you can still get disability benefits. You can receive full benefits regardless of whether you make more than the SGA amount during the 9 month TWP. Also, even if you go back to work and your SSDI is stopped, the SSA gives you five years during which your benefits can be reinstated if you stop work because of reemergence of your disability. During the five-year period, the SSA will not require you to file a new disability application to get benefits. Me personally, unless a miracle happens, I intend to stay on SSDI until SSNRA unless I die before then.
