If the SSA decides that you are no longer eligible to receive your Social Security disability benefits, they will notify you about the termination of your payments. However, in most cases, you have the right to appeal this decision. The right to appeal depends on the reason your benefits were terminated. To initiate the appeal, you need to submit the SSA Request for Reconsideration. If you want to continue receiving your benefits during the appeal process, fill out and submit Form SSA-789 within 10 days since you received the termination notice. In general, you have 60 days from the date you received the notification to submit the form and initiate the appeal.
