Are there time limits on how long I can receive Social Security disability benefits?

Yes, there are times that there are time limitations on the reception of Social Security disability benefits. Typically one will receive these benefits until their full retirement age which is between 65 and 66 now, depending on when you're born. So that's essentially when your disability benefits end. However, that being said, one can reach 65 and still be under a certain threshold, where they still might receive SSI benefits, but at that point in time after full retirement age, it no longer has anything to do with disability. But whether or not your benefits are high enough to meet a minimum standard of living here in the United States, which according to the Social Security administration isn't much somewhere around $770 to $800 a month.
