For those of you who are currently receiving disability benefits be aware that the Social Security Administration (SSA) will be performing many more Continuing Disability Reviews (CDR) in the coming months. A CDR is when the SSA contacts someone who is receiving benefits and decides whether or not you are still disabled. If SSA decides that you are not disabled, they can stop your check. If they decide that you are still disabled, then you will continue receiving your monthly check.
If you receive a notice from SSA that they have found you are no longer disabled, you can ask SSA to continue sending you your check while you appeal their decision. If you want to continue receiving your check, you only have 10 days to contact SSA. You need to contact them ASAP and in person and ask for proof that you asked for your checks to continue. While you are at the SSA they will probably help you file your appeal as well. If you do not contact SSA within the 10 days your monthly check will stop, but you can appeal the decision finding that you are no longer disabled.
If SSA tells you that they have decided that you are no longer disabled, contact SSA first and ask for your check to continue if you want, them contact my office to discuss your claim. You may call me at 865-602-2255 or 1-800-275-8888. You may also contact me at KJernigan@KarenJernigan.com.
