Social Security Disability Benefit Payment
 
You may start the application process for SSDI benefits immediately after your disability onset. An application for Social Security Disability Benefit Payment can be filed by phone, by mailing forms to your SS office or by filing an application in person at your local office. It will take approximately 60-90 days to go through the entire application of Social Security Disability Benefit Payment and approval process. Once approved, your first Social Security Disability Benefit Payment will be made the sixth full month after the disability onset date. Social Security Disability Benefit Payment is paid in the month following the month for which they are due. You can receive Social Security Disability Benefit Payment until the age of 65. When you reach 65, your disability benefits will automatically convert to retirement benefits. The Social Security Disability Benefit Payment amount would remain the same.

Your monthly Social Security Disability Benefit Payment is the same as the regular Social Security retirement benefit payment you would receive if you were age 65 when your disability began.

For a disability benefit recipient who received Social Security disability benefits before age 65, the Social Security Disability Benefit Payment applied as the offset prior to age 65 will remain in effect as the Social Security retirement benefit offset on or after age 65.

For a disability benefit recipient who did not receive Social Security Disability Benefit Payment before age 65, the Social Security Disability Benefit Payment amount that would have been payable by the Social Security Administration had the disability benefit recipient been disabled for the purpose of Social Security will be used as the Social Security retirement benefit offset at age 65 regardless of acceptance of a Social Security retirement benefit before age 65.

When a Social Security Disability Benefit Payment amount is not provided by the Social Security Administration because the individual is not eligible for a disability benefit for a reason other than not being disabled, the Social Security Disability Benefit Payment determined at the date of disability for which the individual is eligible at age 65 will be used for offset purposes at age 65.

If you receive Social Security Disability Benefit Payment, then you are eligible to receive Medicare Health Insurance. You become eligible to receive Medicare Health Insurance 24 months after you receive your first Social Security Disability Benefit Payment. The amount of your income and assets is not a factor in your eligibility for Medicare.
