Regarding the Disability Earnings Survey, when can my benefit be restored?

If your 2015 earnings met or exceeded the earnings limit for that year, your disability annuity will be terminated due to restoration of earnings capacity effective July 1 (you will not be paid an August 1, 2016, payment for July). If you do not have earned income in 2016 or if your earned income in 2016 does not meet or exceed your earnings limit, and if you meet medical requirements, if applicable, your benefit can be restored effective January 1, 2017.
