505. When are your disabled worker's benefits NOT paid?

You do not receive disabled worker's benefits for months during which you meet any of the following conditions:

  1. You are deported or removed from the U.S. under certain provisions of law (see §1841). For information on payments while you are outside the U.S., see http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10137.html;

  2. You are an alien, and either:

    1. Living outside the U.S. for more than six full calendar months in a row (see §1845 for exceptions to this rule); or

    2. Residing in a country where payment is prohibited by U.S. Treasury regulations (see §1847 and §1848);

    For information on payments while you are outside the U.S., see http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10137.html;

  3. You are entitled to disabled worker's benefits only because you turned 55 and are blind (see §507.4), and you are engaging in substantial gainful activity;

  4. You are imprisoned in the United States for conviction of a felony committed at any time;

    Note: You may still be eligible for benefits if you are participating in a rehabilitation program that has been specifically approved for you by a court of law. It must be expected that you will be able to engage in substantial gainful activity upon your release within a reasonable time. (See §1850.)

  5. You are engaging in substantial gainful activity following your completion of a trial work period (see §506 and §519), even though you may still have a disability; or

  6. You are living in the United States and you are neither a U.S. citizen nor an alien lawfully present.
