What are the Administrative Discharge Requirements
For A Person Receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Benefits?
The Department of Education’s standard for administrative discharge may differ from disability standards used by other federal agencies or by state agencies. You can demonstrate your total and permanent disability through the use of your SSA notice of award for SSDI or SSI benefits only if the award statement shows that your next scheduled disability review will be within 5 to 7 years from the date of your most recent SSA disability determination. If your SSA notice of award does not indicate when your next scheduled disability review will occur, you can obtain this information by calling your local SSA office and requesting a Benefits Planning Query. The Benefits Planning Query will show when your next review is scheduled to occur.
