When someone is approved for Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits, or Supplemental Income benefits (“SSI”), accompanying the decision is a guideline for when the claimant’s case should be reviewed. SSD and SSI are considered temporary disabilities, unless a person has a condition that is expected to end in death within 14 months from the time they stop working. A review requires the beneficiary to complete paperwork with updated medical information, and to get updated records from their treating doctors to support that they are still disabled, and unable to work full time. Typically, the older a person is, or the lesser the likelihood of their condition improving, the longer the length of time there is between reviews. However, under the Trump administration, a new rule was passed to require more frequent reviews, no matter what the age or medical condition of the beneficiary was. President Biden has withdrawn that rule, which will provide much relief for people who are receiving disability. There will still be reviews, but not at the ramped up rate that the Trump administration had wanted, which was just another excuse to hurt and disgrace those people who are truly disabled and rely on the little amount of money they received for disability, because they’re medical condition(s) prevent them from being able to work full time.Previous Next
