Answers to common Social Security Questions and Concerns

August 31, 2012

Social Security disability (SSDI) benefits will continue as long as the person’s medical condition does not improve and as long as she remains unable to work, according to the The Ledger.

The Social Security Administration will review each case at regular intervals to determine if the person is still disabled and still qualifies for SSDI benefits.

When a person reaches full retirement age, if she is still receiving disability benefits, then they will convert to retirement benefits.

Like disability benefits, retirement benefits are paid each month, and your birthday determines when you collect your retirement benefits. Depending on the day in the month the retiree was born, new retirees receive their benefits on either the second, third, or fourth Wednesday.

If you were born on the 1st through the 10th of the month, your Social Security benefit will be paid on the second Wednesday. If you were born on the 11th through the 20th of the month, you will be paid on the second Wednesday. If you were born on the 21st to the 31st day of the month, you will receive your benefit on the third Wednesday.

If you receive benefits as a spouse, your benefit payment date will be determined by your spouse’s birth date.
