How to prove you are disabled
and win disability benefits


 
Yes, this can happen under a medical cessation.

A medical cessation refers the termination of an individualís disability benefits because of medical improvement. Most medical cessations are the result of periodic medical reviews (known as CDRs or continuing disability reviews), which indicate that there has been medical improvement.

Like all Social Security Administration decisions, a medical cessation may be appealed. Under current Social Security Administration regulations, you have ten days from the cessation letter receipt (in other words, when you received the cessation letter) to request a payment continuation.

If you do not appeal in time to receive a continuation of your benefits, you still have sixty days to appeal the actual decision that was made to stop your benefits.

Remember, though, if you chose to continue receiving your benefits during your appeal period, you will be required to repay the benefits you have received, if your medical cessation is upheld at the reconsideration and the hearings levels.
