What to do if you are under review for disability?
If you have already been approved for disability, have been receiving it for quite some time, and are at the point where your disability claim will be reviewed, there is not much reason for concern. Most claims will be continued following a review. Here are some additional resources for the disability review process.
1. What will trigger a review of a social security disability claim?
2. Advice for a Social Security Disability Continuing Review
3. What Should I Expect at my Social Security Disability Review if I am working part-time?
Of course, if you have filed a disability application and have yet to be notified of a decision yet, that is something else entirely.
If you have filed a disability claim and are waiting for a decision there are some things you can do to help your disability claim. Firstly, if you have filed for disability and you have decided you need to work some to make ends meet, you must stay under the SGA monthly earnings limit. Each year Social Security sets a monthly SGA amount. If you go over this amount while you are under review for disability, it will cause your disability claim to be returned to your local office for denial.
The definition of Social Security disability requires a severe impairment and the inability to perform SGA. Work can cause your claim to be denied and if you are ever approved for disability it can terminate your disability benefits so be careful.
Secondly, you need to provide the disability examiner working on your claim with anything they need. They will be sending out questionnaires for you to complete, speaking with you by phone, and possibly asking you to attend a consultative examination. It is imperative you comply with their needs or your disability claim may be denied for failure to cooperate.
Thirdly, always make sure that you provide Social Security with a good address and phone number. Social Security sends all requests and decisional notices through the mail and if the address is wrong you will not receive them. This can have devastating effects on your disability case. You may miss their request and your claim will be denied for failure to cooperate, or if they deny your disability claim you may miss the 60 day appeal period. If you miss your appeal period you will have to begin again.
