What is an expedited reinstatement?



 
If your Social Security disability benefit was terminated due to your performance of substantial gainful activity (in other words, you worked and earned more than the allowable SGA monthly earnings limit), you have five years in which you may be able to begin receiving your disability benefits again. You do not have to file a new disability application, however you will have to provide your current medical information.

Your expedited reinstatement will be sent to the state disability processing agency for the completion of a medical determination to ascertain if you are still disabled under Social Security rules and regulations and to render a disability decision on this basis. You are entitled to receive provisional payments (disability benefits payable only during the medical determination period) for six months, while the state disability agency makes the medical determination for your expedited reinstatement.

If the state disability-processing agency does not find that you have a continuing disability, the provisional benefits will be terminated. Additionally, if your expedited reinstatement takes longer than six months to process, your provisional payments will still be terminated after the sixth month.

Therefore, it is in your best interest to attend any consultative exams scheduled for you by the state disability agency (this agency is known in most states as DDS, or disability determination services) and to provide any other information that is needed to process your expedited reinstatement.
