There is no rebuilding for SS Disability. He received a retroactive benefit to the date of his application. It is his to use as he needs. He will also receive a regular monthly benefit payment. His benefit will not be based on or reduced by savings; that only applies to SSI which has asset restrictions. Hopefully he was able to get current on his bills and will be able to remain so. Please let him know he can rest, no rebuilding is required.
