    Default How to Get Expedited Reinstatement of Social Security Benefits After Job, Marriage

    My adult daughter has a declaration of disability and received SSI under survivorship disability benefits. She attempted to go to work; her disability status was reviewed and determined that she was still disabled and would have expedited reinstatement if she could no longer continue to work. She has continued to pay her Medicare premium and receive Medicare benefits.

    During this period she was married. She is experiencing health related issues that will no longer allow her to work. She was told she no longer had "expedited reinstatement" and had to totally reapply for diasability under her own work status. She has her own continuous work quarters and is eligible to receive disability.

    Is there any advice as to how to navigate this issue? It seems the only requirement ought be whether she has enough SSI work quarters not whether her medical condition is still disabling. Thank you.

    Slight confusion here.

    She received SSI under survivorship benefits? That indicates that someone, somewhere, died and your daughter received benefits due to that death. Could you please clarify?

    Her father died when she was 13. At age 21 she recieved a declaration of disability due to multiple medical conditions. She attempted to go back to work, married but is no longer able to sustain work due to her medical problems.

    The marriage may permanently make her ineligible for Childhood Disability Survivor benefits. The fact that she was 'declared' disabled at age 13 is not sufficient for SSA to decide that she is disabled today, especially since she went to work despite her disabling condition. And SSA doesn't make disability decisions for survivor benefits at age 13 since being a minor is sufficient for entitlement. Expedited reinstatement can apply, but only for the benefits that she was originally entitled to, and her marriage may (or may not) have been a terminating event and that would cancel the expedited reinstatement. You also mention SSI and quarters. There are no quarters needed for SSI since it is a welfare program.

    You are mixing entitlement requirements and that can be why you are not getting the answer you think is right.
