Can a person stay on Social Security Disability for life?
Entitlement to Social Security Disability benefits requires a showing that the applicant has paid into the system for a sufficient period of time (provided by statute), plus a determination that he/she is essentially wholly unable to work. Assuming that the showing is made, and that the entitlement continues to be proven during periodic reviews that the Social Security Administration may make, benefits will generally be paid until the normal retirement age. At at point, Social Security is triggered (as distinct from SSDI), which may be a different monthly payment than had been received as SSDI.

Additionally, if the recipient qualifies for SSDI and has minor children, the child(ren) may be entitled to benefits until the age of 18, or 19 if he/she remains a full-time student.
