Hey everyone, I've been getting SSDI since about 2013 and I'm up for review. Quick question do you still recieve benefits while your case is being reviewed or is it frozen until they make a new determination? Thanks

Yes it continues. I was surprised how fast it was. Got the review notice Jan 29th 2016 got my letter saying SSDI is continuing today and it was dated April 6.

Heck I didn't even know mine was up for review.  I just got a letter stating my benefits would continue.  Mine was close to the 5 year mark.

I was awarded SSDI in 2012, and in late 2015 they sent me a form. Where have you been treated? Are you still disabled? Have you worked? Etc...etc...

Then I got a new (updated) award letter. Is this the review y'all are talking about? 

Im curious because I have no clue if I was reviewed.

For a CDR, they normally send the short update form (six questions, form SSA-455-OCR-SM), or the long form (SSA-454-BK) for a full medical review, depending whether or not they expect your condition may have improved.

Following a CDR, a brief letter is usually sent notifying the recipient that benefits will be continued. This is not an award letter.

Okay, yes it was a letter saying benefits were continued. I'm still receiving, but was curious about that, since I see these review threads. I never had to see a doc or anything for SSDI. It's hard for me to understand the more complicated processes, since my MEB, VA, SSDI were all smooth as silk.... Waiting for some complication down the road.

With a full exam, do they test urine? I partake in leafy stuff.

No, they would not normally test urine.

Is this 'Review' something that is based on individual situations or is it SOP? I was approved in 2010 for SSDI and I don't think I have ever received a notice of a review or anything like that.

Thanks for that link and info. It gives me heads up, however the more I have thought about it I think I may have at one time been sent a form for me to fill out that basically just asked if I was still suffering from the previously ruled ailments or if I had improved. There was no Doctor visit or anything but I guess time will tell. 

If I had my choice I would be in the workforce and I am actually trying to find a way for me to re enter and get off SSDI although I am now getting in my middle 50's and that really makes it difficult.

If you are 100%P&T I wouldn't worry too much, I talked to the office in Manila and they said reviews for those personal are put on the back burner
