When a person begins receiving Social Security disability benefits, claimants may believe that they don’t need to do anything else. However, the Social Security Administration imposes duties on claimants to keep the Social Security Administration informed and updated on any changes which can affect a claimant’s eligibility for benefits. These changes include:
- Changes in work activity such as changes in hours, rate of pay, and jobs;
- Changes in your living arrangements such as other adults and children living in the household;
- Improvements in your medical or mental condition; and
- If you move out of the country.
Make sure that you keep a copy of any written correspondence notifying the Social Security Administration of these changes in case your notification is loss of misplaced.
Should you have any questions about Social Security disability benefits, contact an experienced Social Security disability attorney.
