Excerpted from "Social Security Handbook". See the up-to-date, official Social Security Handbook at ssa.gov.

511. When does your period of disability end?

For title II, your period of disability generally ends with the last day of the month that the earliest of these events occurs:

  1. The second month after the month your disability ends;

  2. The month before the month you reach full retirement age; or

  3. The month you die.

Note: See §506(A) for the circumstances under which your period of disability may continue after your disability ends. This section also provides the circumstances under which your period of disability may continue if you have completed a trial work period and are doing substantial gainful activity.
