Will my benefits ever expire or run out?

No.  You will continue to receive your benefits as long as you remain disabled.  However, your case will likely be reviewed every couple of years to determine whether you remain disabled.  That is why it is a good idea to continue to seek medical treatment even after receiving benefits.  If you are still eligible for disability benefits when you reach your retirement age, the Social Security Administration will automatically transfer your disability benefits to retirement benefits.
