Social Security Question:
Do I have to pay back SSDI if I work after 66
Social Security Answer:
I have been receiving SSDI for the past few years after being disabled with some serious cancer issues, which I was not expected to recover from. Now as of May 28, 2011, this year, I will be at the full retirement age of 66 and very unexpectedly, over of the past few months, I have slowly started recovering from my illness. I have recently received a letter from the SSA that states as of May, this year, 2011 there is no limit on what I can earn. I was thinking if I continue to improve about possibly, at some point, being able to work some again to earn a few extra dollars in these hard economic times. However, a friend of mine has assured me that anything I earn will have to go to pay back the SSA for any past SSDI I have previously received. Is this correct? If so what are the conditions of repayment?

Absolutely not!!!!! You may earn any amount if you are over age 66. There is no disability after 65 1/2.....Your friend is wrong.....Enjoy your new healthiness.
