    I'm sorry to hear you didn't have a great experience when you called the disability hotline.

    Here's a couple things I found by doing a quick search on www.ssa.gov/benefits/disability/:

    How long payments continue

    Generally, your disability benefits will continue as long as your medical condition has not improved and you can’t work. Benefits won’t necessarily continue indefinitely. Because of advances in medical science and rehabilitation techniques, many people with disabilities recover from serious accidents and illnesses. We’ll review your case periodically to make sure you still have a qualifying disability.

    The Social Security Administration also has a FAQ page for people currently on SSDI. I would browse that page to see if what you're looking for is answered there.

    I would consider using the my Social Security portal. You can check your application status in real time from there, without having to call in. And you should be able to see most everything you need about anything related to your Social Security and disability benefits once you create an account, which doesn't take long at all. And it'll save you from having to call in.
