The Social Security Administration (SSA) periodically reviews benefit recipients’ disabilities to determine whether or not they are still disabled. The SSA is mandated by law to perform these reviews, referred to as Continuing Disability Reviews (CDRs), periodically for all disability benefits recipients.
What does a Continuing Disability Review Entail?
When a periodic review of your case is due, you will receive a letter in the mail from the SSA informing you that your Social Security disability review has begun. The SSA also will send you a medical report form to obtain information about your condition and about the doctors, clinics, and hospitals that you have seen within the past 12 months. Additionally, the SSA will review your income, resources, and living arrangements to ensure you still meet the non-medical requirements. This periodic review is referred to as a redetermination.
The frequency of your periodic reviews depends upon your disability. The SSA explains, “The law requires us to perform a medical CDR approximately every three years unless we determine you have a condition that we expect will improve sooner than that. However, if you have a condition that is not expected to improve, we will still review your case, but not as often as every three years.”
