Customer Question

10 years ago the IRS sent me a letter stating that I'd receive $1,800.00 per month if I were disabled. Last year IRS said that disability amount dropped to $1,650.00 per month. I've been working during all of those 10 years. My question: how & why did the IRS monthly benefit letter amount drop that much ??

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

Are you referring to social security? The IRS does not pay any benefits. The IRS collects taxes.

The are many variables that affect your disability benefits but one of the biggest factor are your earnings (not how much have been withheld from your paycheck). If you benefits dropped I would suggest to check with the social security (online, over the phone or by visiting your local office), to make sure that all your earnings had been properly reported.

At 65 you can sign up for Medicare, even if you are still working.
