Disability benefits cessation as medical condition improves

The Social Security Administration (SSA) may decide to terminate the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) payments for individuals under the following circumstances:

  • The SSA may terminate the SSDI benefits of individuals whose medical conditions have improved.
  • The SSDI recipients are already qualified for “substantial gainful activity,” (SGA) meaning they are earning a monthly income similar to their monthly earnings while not disabled.

The SSA usually notifies SSDI recipients through the mail within a month that their benefits have been terminated. SSDI recipients, on the other hand, should know that they will be given three months worth of SSDI payments (a grace period) before their benefits are completely terminated.
