Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are not impacted by assets, inheritance, or other unearned income.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are not impacted by assets, inheritance, or other unearned income. Your SSDI benefits are based upon your work history and the amount of taxes you paid into Social Security. Only income that is earned from working, can affect your SSDI benefits once your Trial Work Period time has been met.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is affected by your assets, inheritance, and other income (earned or unearned).
So, if you receive an inheritance and are currently receiving SSDI, then you are okay and will continue to receive your SSDI benefits as you normally would.
If you need to apply for disability, appeal a denied claim, or if you have a hearing scheduled for an SSDI or SSI claim, the best thing you can do to improve your chances at winning your claim is to hire an experienced disability attorney.
