Retirement Benefits

Once you qualify for Social Security retirement benefits, you will receive compensation until you die unless you're younger than SSA's full retirement age (typically 66 for those currently considering retirement) and you exceed the annual earned income cap of $14,160 by enough to temporarily disrupt payment while the amount is being offset. Cash benefits also end if you are incarcerated or enter a nursing home for more than 30 days.

When you reach full retirement age, the income limit will be lifted and you will receive benefits until you die.


Disability Benefits

If you receive Social Security disability payments, your benefits will continue until you are capable of engaging in Substantial Gainful Activity (often defined as earning more than $1,000 per month for most disabilities, or $1,640 per month for blindness) or until the payments convert to retirement benefits. As with retirement benefits, disability benefits stop at any time you are incarcerated or maintained in a tax-supported facility for more than 30 days. If you are otherwise eligible, benefits will resume after your release, but you will not receive back pay for the time you were under the government's care.
