Hi. My name's Lane. I can help you with this.

...

If i understand your question, any appeal, cancellation of appeal, or any OTHER issue involving an appeal, will NOT affect your Social Security RETIREMENT benefits at all.

...

The only possibility would be if the appeal has to do with your work record (how long you worked, your average earnings, etc).

Expert:  Lane replied 3 months ago.

SSDI is basewd on two things; (1) your having enough years (quarters), at the right times, in the system to be insured, and (2) your actual disability.

...

Most disabilty appeals have to do with number (2)

...

You Social Security Retirement benefit has ONLY to do with your having enough quarters in the system to get a retirement benefit (and of course, being old enough to collec t a retirement benefit)
