Social Security Disability

The Social Security system provides a monthly disability check to certain individuals who have worked long enough under the Social Security system and are totally disabled as per the definition in the Social Security Act. The disability must last or be expected to last at least 12 months or to result in death.

The Social Security Act defines "disability" as "inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.

Yes, there is a process called Continuing Disability Review. How often they will review your case depends upon each case situation. If the medical condition that caused your disability is likely to improve within a year, they would likely set it up for review in a year. If it is probable that your disability is permanent, they may review your case every three or five years, and sometimes not at all. The system is set up to review all cases; however, the system is backlogged and it seems that many of the claims involving a clearly permanently totally disabled person are not reviewed. The Social Security Administration is improving their review processes at this time, but the results have not yet been realized.
