Baltimore Social Security Disability Lawyers: SSA’s Review of Disability BenefitsMay 10, 2016
If you currently receive Social Security disability benefits, it is important that you are prepared when the Social Security Administration (SSA) decides to conduct a review of your condition. The SSA will conduct these reviews in order to determine whether you still qualify for disability benefits based on the status of your medical condition. If you have the right information on hand prior to meeting with the examiner, it will make the process go much more smoothly.
When the time comes for your case to be reviewed, the SSA will send you a letter notifying you to go to your local Social Security office where you will be asked questions about whether or not your medical condition has improved. You will also be asked to provide information about the medical treatment you have received and whether you have been able to work at all since Social Security deemed you to be disabled.
You will also be asked to provide any medical reports that the disability examiner from your state’s Disability Determination Services requests. He or she will conduct an in-depth review of the information you provide and make a determination as to whether your condition is expected to improve. If there is information missing, you may be asked to undergo a cost free medical exam so that they will have all of the information they need to make a decision. Typically, the SSA reviews disability cases every three years. If your condition is not expected to improve, the SSA will review your case again every seven years, and you will continue to receive your benefits.
Your disability benefits will only stop if your medical condition has improved and you are physically able to return to work. If you feel that you should continue receiving your benefits, you may appeal the decision and ask that your case be reviewed again. If you are not sure whether you should continue to receive Social Security disability benefits, or if you would like to appeal a decision, you should contact an experienced Baltimore Social Security disability lawyer who can answer any questions you may have.
