Incarcerated While Receiving Social Security Disability

Incarcerated While Receiving Social Security Disability

  • An individual who is Incarcerated cannot Apply for SSDI or SSI
  • If an individual is receiving Social Security Disability, and is Imprisoned for less than 30 days, they can continue to receive those Benefits
    • If the individual is Incarcerated for more than 30 days, the benefits will automatically be terminated
  •  If you are Imprisoned for less than 12 months, you may engage in a Reinstatement Process
  • You will need to go through the entire process all over again if you are Incarcerated for more than 12 months
  • In most cases, an Incarcerated individual’s Spouse may still receive Benefits
