The Social Security Administration (“SSA”) will periodically conduct
a continuing disability review (“CDR”) to determine if you remain
disabled. The regulations state that a CDR should be done at least once
every three years, unless you have a medical condition that is not
expected to improve, in which case the CDR should take place every five
to seven years. If the SSA determines that your medical condition has
improved, then your Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits
will be terminated.
We represent a 34 year old financial services manager who the SSA found
disabled in 2018 due to IBS. However, the SSA terminated his benefits on
the grounds that his health had improved, and he retained us again.
On reconsideration, we were able to obtain reports from the claimant’s
doctors that explained how the objective medical evidence supported his
persistent functional deficits. As a result, the SSA reversed its decision, and
reinstated SSD benefits.
The SSA has been increasingly seeking ways to reduce the number of
claimants collecting SSD benefits. You cannot assume that you will continue
to receive SSD benefits until you reach retirement age. That is why it is vital that you continue to see your doctors on a regular basis even after you are approved for SSD benefits. It is equally as important to retain an experienced Social Security Disability attorney if the SSA erroneously terminates your benefits. Our office offers free phone consultations and we have offices located on Long Island in both Nassau and Suffolk counties.
