Social Security Questions? Ask a Social Security Expert
Hi from just answer. I'mCustomer I'll assist.
It is rare that a disability recipient wants to suspend collecting benefits, but you can.
You need to both go to a social security office in person to do this, and both of you will have to identify yourselves and make your application to suspend.
They may suggest you keep your benefits, and route the payments to another entity, like a trust. I would suggest that as well, because there could be real problems if you are the income earner and caregiver and you predecease.
Consider using some of the payments to buy enough life insurance to replace you and your income. I know that wasn't your question, but I wanted to make that suggestion.
Thanks for asking at just answer. Positive feedback is appreciated. I'mCustomer
