How often will my disability claim be reviewed?




 
Social Security disability claims are reviewed according to the medical review diary date. There are three types of medical review diary dates that determine how often a social security disability claim or SSI disability claim will be reviewed.

Most disability claims have a medical improvement possible diary date, meaning that they will be reviewed every three years.

Additionally, there are some disability claims where medical improvement is expected and these individuals may be reviewed in less than three years.

Lastly, there are some disability beneficiaries who have a permanent diary, which extends the medical review diary date at least seven years into the future.

In general, individuals who are under fifty-five will be reviewed every three years not matter what the medical or psychological impairment.

Remember, though, that some continuing disability reviews are triggered by an individualís work activity, because the ability to engage in work activity that provides substantial and gainful income may indicate medical improvement.
