SSD benefits can prove elusive for many

Many Indiana residents struggle with debilitating physical or mental conditions yet wish to and continue to work. If the situation deteriorates further and working every day is no longer possible, they may apply for Social Security disability. Unfortunately, the reality for most first-time SSD applicants is a denial of benefits, which comes with the implicit finding that they are still deemed capable of working. Although it's common to accept an initial denial, there are various methods of appeal that hold promise for some who persevere to prove their disability to the Social Security Administration.

What are 3 ways you can lose Social Security disability benefits?

Not everyone across Indiana has an easy time obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance from the U.S. Social Security Administration, so if you were able to successfully do so, you probably want to do everything in your power to retain them. There are, however, several circumstances that may lead the administration to deem you ineligible to continue receiving benefits, which could potentially leave you facing serious financial hardship.

An overview of SGA

Indiana residents and others who are applying for disability benefits must be able to show that they have a significant physical or mental impairment. This impairment must make it impossible for an applicant to engage in substantial gainful activity, or SGA. Generally speaking, a person meets the SGA threshold by making at least $1,220 per month as of 2019. Those who are able to make more than that amount each month will have their applications denied.
