CONTINUING DISABILITY REVIEW

Social Security will periodically review your case to determine if you continued to be disabled. This is called a continuing disability review (CDR). This will typically occur at least once every three years.

It is important that you respond to the letters they send. Many cases are denied during the review simply because the forms have not been returned. You must ensure you advise Social Security of all providers you have seen since you were granted benefits, or since your last review.

If you returned to work, let Social Security know in writing that you have done so immediately. This can help avoid an overpayment.

Always keep a copy of anything you send to Social Security. They frequently lose items. Our office will send the agency items by certified mail, with a signed receipt, and they still cannot find the material that was sent.

Most people will continue to receive their benefits. If you do not, you may appeal this decision. You may also request that your benefits continue during the appeal, but you only have a limited time in which to do so.

A Social Security attorney can help advise you in this.
