Expedited Reinstatement (EXR)
Definition - What does Expedited Reinstatement (EXR) mean?
Expedited reinstatement (EXR) refers to restarting a claimant's disability benefits payments after they have ended without requiring that the claimant reapply for benefits. The U.S. Social Security Administration provides expedited reinstatement to claimants whose income drops below the substantial gainful activity (SGA) income limit within the five-year period after they stop receiving benefits.
Justipedia explains Expedited Reinstatement (EXR)
The U.S. Social Security Administration provides Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to claimants who are not able to engage in substantial gainful activity because of their impairment(s). The SSA stops paying disability benefits to a claimant once the claimant starts working and earning above the SGA income limit. Because the application process for SSI and SSDI benefits can be lengthy, expedited reinstatement is provided for those who have recently gone through the application process.
