Is There a Time Limit on How Long You Can Receive Social Security Benefits?

Those receiving, and those applying to receive, Social Security Disability benefits might wonder if there is a time limit to the length of time they are eligible to receive benefits. The easiest way to look at the question and subsequently answer it is to begin by saying that there are not two cases that are exactly the same, so-the same outcome is not necessarily standard across the board. When it comes to continued payments, however, if your medical condition does not improve, your disability payments do not stop, regardless of the type of impairment.

Chronic Pain

Have you ever heard of an individual who suffered an injury or illness resulting in an amputated limb, be it an arm or a leg, but was still able to feel pain in that area? Have you ever witnessed an individual discuss pain that existed without a known cause? Chances are you've seen some mention of it on TV, or read a report in a newspaper at sometime. Perhaps you even know the feeling yourself. There's a big issue that's affecting millions of people...and that issue is chronic pain.

Understanding the Process

According to the Social Security Administration (SSA), the Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. Social Security Disability pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are "insured," meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes. Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need.

In The News

Budget issues are plaguing just about everyone these days, the government included. In an article recently posted on Kiplinger, a website geared towards finance advice, Mary Beth Franklin revealed that, as of April, most employees in the United State will no longer be receiving mailed statements of their Social Security benefit estimates. Why? Because of the national budget, or lack thereof.
