What would you like to do?
Do social security disability checks stop when you reach age 65?
No, it is not a taxable income. Although they give you a 1099 at the end of the year. I would also check with your state laws and maybe a tax consultant if it is not your only… source of income.
Disability payments are Social Security Payments. When a person reaches full retirement age (66), the payments continue as normal, but are no longer considered disability pay…ments. A person does not receive two payments.
AS SOMEONE WHO USED TO WORK FOR THE DEPT OF EDUCATION. IT IS TRUE, BECAUSE THE DEPT OF EDUCATION IS A FEDERAL AGENCY AND SSI AND DISS IS CONSIDERED TO BE A FEDERAL APPRO…VED PROGRAM, THEY ARE ALLOWED TO INTERCEPT IT UP TO 25% BASED ON THE AMOUNT YOU GET MONTHLY. IF THIS DOES OCCUR, THE OFFSET (GARNISHMENT) WILL CONTINUE UNTIL THE FULL BALANCE OF THE LOAN IS PAID OFF OR YOU DIE! SO BEST THING TO DO IS PAY BEFORE THIS HAPPENS. - THEY ALLOW YOU A 65 DAY PERIOD FROM THE DAY THE LETTER IS MAILED OUT TO YOUR HOME ADDRESS, TO GET ON AN APPROVED ARRANGMENT FOR YOU LOAN.
No. If a creditor other than the federal government tries to garnish your Social Security benefits, inform them that such an action violates Section 207 of the Social Security… Act (42 U.S.C. 407). Additional Information I only work as a paralegal at a judgment recovery firm which handles wage garnishments and bank account garnishments to collect money from judgments which have already been settled, I am not an attorney and I recommend you speak to one for legal advice. With that said, the basic answer is no they cannot. When pursuing for instance a bank account garnishment the law firm is required to send you a form notifying you of the garnishment action and included in this paperwork are some discovery forms where you will be asked a series of questions which they use to try and find other ways to collect such as other accounts you may have, etc. Included in this discovery is a form called "Claim of Exemption" where you have the option of saying that you are exempt from all or part of the garnishment because of reasons that you check off or write in. One of the options is social security benefits, which are specifically listed as exemptable income. Among various other things once you file this you say that they cannot take this money. Your money will remain frozen which is what happens when they move to garnish your account. The simple act of filing this though will prevent them from moving for a final judgment of garnishment which moves to actually have bank take the frozen money and send it to the firm. Now in my experience there are plenty bogus exemption claims, but when the exemption was for social security payments and the claim was valid, the case is usually dropped. occasionally usually on demand by the client the firm may move ahead with a hearing for an objection to your claim of exemption but if the claim is valid then even when defendants appear pro se (without an attorney) the exemption claim has ALWAYS been sustained by the judge and the objection overturned and soon after your money will no longer be frozen. Once again I advise you to speak to a licensed attorney for legal advice, this is just what I observe at our particular office as ONLY a paralegal. Good luck.
No they cannot. A Judge recently ruled on this in San Francisco CA in August 2009. Ordering Social Security to payback over $500 million dollars to more than 80,000 people. Se…arch for San Francisco newspaper Social Security Benefits in August of this year.
Generally not, except for Federal debts (Federal taxes) and child support or alimony. Generally, Social Security benefits are exempt from execution, levy, attachmen…t, garnishment, or other legal process, or from the operation of any bankruptcy or insolvency law. The exceptions are that benefits are subject: (1) to the authority of the Secretary of the Treasury to make levies for the collection of delinquent Federal taxes and under certain circumstances delinquent child support payments; and (2) to garnishment or similar legal process brought by an individual to enforce a child support or alimony obligation. Section 207 of the Social Security Act provides: "The right of any person to any future payment under this title shall not be transferable or assignable, at law or in equity, and none of the moneys paid or payable or rights existing under this title shall be subject to execution, levy, attachment, garnishment, or other legal process, or to the operation of any bankruptcy or insolvency law." However, section 6331 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 (26 U.S.C. 6331) which was enacted into law on August 16, 1954, after the enactment of section 207, gives the Secretary of the Treasury the right to levy or seize for collection of delinquent Federal taxes, property, rights to property, whether real or personal, tangible, or intangible and the right to make successive levies and seizures until the amount due, together with all expenses, is fully paid.
If the money is deposited into the account that has the overdraft, yes they can recover their monies.
yes, in a way it can be garnished. my brother wrote some bad checks went to court over it and they garnished his check after it hit his bank account. the bank and the court ha…d it set up to where the amount would be withdrawn shortly after the deposit was made. ....NO, only if you fail to answer a court hearing and get a judgement against you, THEN, fail to invoke your exemption status ! Only in the cases of back taxes and back child support can Social Security be taken from your account. That is, unless you fail to claim your exemption, then the bank will forward it on ..gotta get off your a$$ to the the above answer.
No, Social Security benefits continue unless you reenter the workforce and engage in Substantial Gainful Activity (SGA), which translates to earning more than an average of $1…,000 per month for most disabilities or $1,640 per month for blindness. If you remain unemployed or employed below the level of SGA, disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits when you reach full retirement age (for people born before 1943, age 65; for people born between 1943 and 1954, age 66). Your benefit amount will usually remain the same, except for standard cost of living adjustments (COLA), but there will no longer be a limit on the amount of income you can earn.
You can draw a reduced Social Security benefit starting between age 62 and your full retirement age. Someone born in 1953 has a full retirement age 66. You should become fami…liar with the Social Security website given in the related link.
No - you have to apply.

It depends on the particular policy, so really the only way to know is to check with the insurance company that issued it or read the actual policy language itself. Generall…y speaking, benefits payable through a Group Long Term Disability policies (purchased by or through an employer) end either on the person's 65th birthday or else when the insured reaches "Social Security Normal Retirement Age", which is a sliding scale based on the date of the brith of the insured. There are also federal laws (ADEA in particular) which may affect the duration of benefit available based on the age the person becomes disabled. So for example, if a person is working and becomes disabled the day before their 65th birthday, they typically can expect a benefit period of more than just that day (for example, a full year may be available for that person, even though it is past their 65th birthday). There is often a chart listed in the policy which shows maximum benefit duration based on the age at which the insured becomes disabled. Other policies have a flat maximum benefit duration, for example a flat 2 years, a flat 5 years, or a flat 10 years. Finally, whenever discussing maximum benefit durations it should always be noted that a maxim benefit duration is not a guarantee of payment for that duration. All requirements set forth in the policy must be met in order to continue receiving benefits. For example, a policy may allow benefits to be paid to age 65, however after the 2nd year of disability the insured must be receiving Social Security Disability benefits in order to also receive a disability benefit. Other policies may specific a limited benefit duration, such as for mental health, substance abuse or "subjective symptom" conditions. So in those cases, benefits may end well before the maximum specified in the policy.
You can elect to discontinue Social Security disability benefits at any time; however, you may have to pay a visit to your local field office to prove you are the person to wh…om the check or deposit is issued.
do social security disability benifits decrease at age 66
