When does your period of disability end?

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.

How do I apply to receive benefits for my 2 daughters, who are both in school full time? My ex husband receives SSI , and told me to go down and apply because they qualify to get benefits.

Can I do that online? I cant find anything on it.

Perhaps I'm unclear on your question, but in general, children can not receive dependent's benefits simply because a parent receives Supplemental Security Income.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are based on the needs of the individual and are only paid to the qualifying person. There are no spouse's, children's or survivors benefits payable.

However, if a child is disabled, that child may receive SSI benefits.
