Expedited Reinstatement

December 7, 2016

SSA has published new rules on Expedited Reinstatement (EXR).  The final rule changes the policy effective April 17, 2017 and now allows beneficiaries to request expedited reinstatement of benefits in the month they stop performing substantial gainful activity (SGA).  The previous rule required beneficiaries to request EXR in the month in which they were unable to work at the SGA level.  This meant someone who earned SGA amounts in the first week of March and then stopped working due to their medical impairments had to wait until April to request EXR.  The new rule will allow the individual to apply for EXR as soon as they stop performing SGA.
