Advice for a Social Security Disability Continuing Review

If it is time for your continuing disability review (most disability beneficiaries have a review every three years), the Social Security Administration will contact you and you will most likely be notified of the review by letter. The letter will either ask you to fill out the enclosed paperwork and return it by a certain date, or inform you that you have been scheduled for a telephone appointment, or face to face interview with a claims representative at your local Social Security office.

Whatever the method of contact, make sure that you respond to the Social Security contact person mentioned in the letter. If you have been scheduled for a telephone interview, or in-person interview, and you know that you will be unable to complete the necessary information at that time, you should call and ask to have your continuing disability review appointment changed to a more convenient date.

The continuing disability review paperwork is the same for all contact methods. What information does the continuing disability review paperwork request? Well, for one thing, you will need to provide your physicians' names, addresses, and treatment dates since your last review or decision (if this is your first review).

If you have engaged in any type of work activity, be prepared to give details as to the length of time you worked, how many hours per week you worked, your hourly pay, and what your job duties were, or are.

If you are prepared with the above information, your interview should go smoothly and take only a few minutes. Remember, if you are mailing in your continuing disability review forms be sure to fill them out completely and sign all paperwork that requires a signature.
