When are your disabled worker's benefits NOT paid?
You do not receive disabled worker's benefits for months during which you meet any of the following conditions:
You are an alien, and either:
Living outside the U.S. for more than six full calendar months in a row (see §1845 for exceptions to this rule); or
For information on payments while you are outside the U.S., see http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10137.html;
You are entitled to disabled worker's benefits only because you turned 55 and are blind (see §507.4), and you are engaging in substantial gainful activity;
You are imprisoned in the United States for conviction of a felony committed at any time;
Note: You may still be eligible for benefits if you are participating in a rehabilitation program that has been specifically approved for you by a court of law. It must be expected that you will be able to engage in substantial gainful activity upon your release within a reasonable time. (See §1850.)
You are living in the United States and you are neither a U.S. citizen nor an alien lawfully present.
