As a result of the passage of the Ticket to Work and Work Incentives
Improvement Act of 1999, effective January 1, 2001, both Beneficiaries
and Recipients of Title II and XVI whose disability benefits ended because
of earnings from work may be able to request reinstatement of benefits.
· Beneficiaries must be unable to work because of their disability.
· No longer able to perform SGA because of an impairment that is the
same or related to the impairment that provided previous entitlement.
· The individual must file the request for reinstatement with SSA
within 60 months from the month of their termination.
· Up to six months of benefits can be paid while waiting for the new
determination. This payment is not considered an overpayment even if
the determination of no longer medically eligible is made.
Note: If the decision results in the reinstatement of benefits the
individual must receive at least 24 months (not necessarily consecutive)
before he or she can access a new TWP and EPE. If the decision is that
the individual is no longer medically eligible for benefits, it will
terminate his or her eligibility for the extended Medicare benefit.
