What are all the benefits associated with Social Security disability?
The most notable benefit from Social Security disability claim is that the benefits receiver
automatically eligible for health care coverage through Medicare after 24 months. This doesn’t usually start until their 65th birthday, but those receiving Social Security Disability Insurance
(SSDI) are exempt from this requirement. Becoming disabled long before an SSDI claim is
approved, makes it so that it is still possible to receive retroactive credit toward the 24-month waiting period for Medicare
The SSA will conduct periodic reviews to ensure your disability is ongoing and that all coverage and benefit payments are still warranted. SSDI Medicare coverage will end if a benefits receiver returns to work in the future, but the SSA does offer several employment resources called work incentives to those who have recovered or are able to work under certain circumstances.
