Many people may have a need for Social Security Disability but also may not have any idea as to how it works. First of all, Social Security Disability isn’t just for anyone and you have to be declared disabled, go through the application process, and be approved for it before you can start receiving benefits. Second, once you have been approved and start receiving the monetary benefits, they can be taken away if certain things happen. Our Social Security Disability Attorneys at the Lake of the Ozarks here to explain how social security disability can be revoked. If you have any questions on this, be sure to give our Camden County Social Security Disability attorney a call today at 573-346-9990. Deputy and Mizell can help you with the important process of applying for and keeping your social security disability.
Will My Social Security Disability Be Revoked If I…
Forget to report medical information?
There is a chance that your SSD could be revoked. Plain and simple, you must send in your medical records to be considered for Social Security Disability benefits. If you refuse to send those in, then you are likely to be denied.
Earn over a certain amount of income?
Yes, it could be. When getting Social Security Disability benefits, you typically are required not to work over a certain amount of hours, if you are in a situation where you can keep a part-time job. If you work over the allotted hours limit you are considered to be engaging in “substantial gainful activity” (SGA). In 2018, the limit for earned income from working for nonblind people receiving SSD benefits is $1180 a month.
Have a medical condition that is temporary?
Possibly, temporary medical conditions can be denied for Social Security Disability. For example, if you had a Leg sprain, Leg Surgery, Broken ankle, Hand sprain, Arm sprain, or Broken wrist…these could be considered temporary conditions and your SSD claim may be denied.
Fail to take the medicine or treatment that has been prescribed to me?
A healthcare professional can’t actually determine if your condition keeps you from working if you don’t follow your treatment plan. For this reason, you could be denied.
Am disabled because of drugs or alcohol?
Possibly. Alcoholism or Drug Addiction can be stopped. In the case that someone no longer did drugs or abused alcohol, they could be able to do their jobs ok. This is what the Social Security Administration has to consider when judging a claim like this.
