What Can I Expect From My Social Security Disability Medical Review?

Question: For the past few years, I have been receiving disability benefits from Social Security. Next month I am scheduled to have a medical review. What should I expect?

Answer: As part of the medical review, you will likely be asked to provide information concerning medical treatments and any changes that may have occurred in your condition. You may also be asked about any information on work you might have performed, if any.

After that, your file will be reviewed by a team made up of a disability examiner and a doctor, who will request your medical reports.

You may also be asked to undergo a special examination that will be paid for by the Social Security Administration. Upon completion of the review, you will be sent a letter from the SSA informing you of whether or not you are still qualified to receive benefits for disability. If the SSA comes to the decision that your benefits will be discontinued, you have the right to appeal the decision.
