what happens after 3 years

I was approved for SSD for 3 years. Do I have to go through the paperwork every 3 years? Is this the normal?



I do not have a specific answer here for you. I hope you do not mind if I ask why the approval for 3 years? I know there are situations that are time limits as when they expect your illness, etc. to get better and it would have been documented that it was expected that you would get better.

Did you have an attorney when you were approved? If yes, then I would ask them what the steps are and they should be willing to advise you about that. If not, I would make an appt with your local office and go in and talk to them direct about your case and ask what the procedure will be. YOu need specific information from them and not any second hand info. NOt that there isn't some very good info here and on other forums but your case is specific to you.

They may just need new paperwork and documentation for your Dr's so I hope you have regular appts regarding your health if you need to continue on disability after the 3 years. I would imagine that will play a big part in having your SSDI benefits continue. If you have not needed medical care, etc. they may assume you are well enough to go back to work,e tc. See what I am getting at?

I hope this will help a little bit. FaithVA and others here usually have some really good input but I have not seen much from him lately. HOpe he is doing well. He has been a real asset to the board here.

Good luck to you. And let us know what you find out as this is something we do not come across everyday and it will be good to know what you are told.

CDR/Continuing Disability Reviews â?? As long as you are receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) you will be subject to periodic reviews of your claim by Social Security. These will happen every 2-7 years following their most recent decision, based on the type of disability you have, unless you have a terminal illness where your life expectancy is under the 2 year period. These periodic reviews will continue until you reach retirement age, at which point your Social Security Disability benefits automatically turn into regular Social Security retirement benefits and the reviews will stop. It is very important to get in the habit, especially while collecting Social Security Disability/SSI benefits, to see your doctors on a regular basis and get copies of ALL your medical records EVERYTIME you see a doctor or have a test, for the rest of your life. These records will be a very valuable tool when these reviews come up to in order to prove that you are still disabled and eligible to continue to receive Social Security Disability benefits.
