The short answer is, it depends. Your disability benefits will continue as long as your medical condition has not improved and you are unable to work. Some conditions may improve, especially as the medical field continues to advance their techniques. It’s important to note, Social Security will review your case to make sure you still qualify for benefits. Your benefits are not for a definite fixed time.
However, you are responsible for letting Social Security know if any of the following occur:
1. Change in your ability to work
2. Return to work
3. Medical condition improves
In the event that Social Security terminates your benefits, you may request an appeal. The easiest way to file an appeal is on Social Security’s website: www.ssa.gov/disability/appeal.
