Reasons Why Social Security Can
Be Cancelled or Discontinued

The SSA is required to notify you in writing about any cancellation or reduction in benefits, and within this notice, they must tell you the reason for the termination and when your benefits will start to be affected. If you’ve been receiving disability benefits, the two most common reasons for termination are if you’ve recently started working again and are now making over the program’s income threshold, or if your condition has improved to the point you’re no longer considered disabled.

How to Avoid Cancellation

The best way to avoid cancellation is to act quickly by requesting a reconsideration. You only have ten days from receiving your notice to apply for reconsideration if you want to continue to receive benefits. If you wait longer, you risk losing your regular payments immediately; however, you can still ask for reconsideration within 60 days but it won’t guarantee benefits in the interim. Note that if you end up losing your appeal, the SSA may determine you’ve been overpaid and can then legally request a portion of the payments back. Because so much needs to happen in such a short amount of time, it can be incredibly helpful to have an experienced attorney working on your behalf to ensure the best possible outcome.

Your Rights to Challenge the Cancellation

If you feel you should still be receiving benefits, you have every right to appeal the SSA’s decision and challenge their determination. The SSA is a huge government organization that helps millions of people each year, but they can also make mistakes, overlook evidence, or deny people benefits who truly need and deserve them. If you follow the correct procedure and timeline for requesting reconsideration, the SSA must re-evaluate your file and review any new evidence you bring forth to help your appeal. 

The Appeals Process

The Social Security appeals process can be a lengthy ordeal, but I can help you stay on schedule, accumulate evidence, and build a solid case on your behalf. After the SSA has received your request for reconsideration, they may wish to schedule a hearing with an Administrative Law Judge whose job it is to hear your side of the story and decide whether to reinstate your benefits or terminate them. If this first level of appeals is unsuccessful, I’ll then help you take your case to the Appeals Council or even up to a Federal Court. I won’t stop until we’ve exhausted every possible solution.
