Did you know that once you have been awarded disability benefits, your claim may come up for review in the future?  Usually these reviews won’t come up for a couple of years, but sometimes your award may result a review in as early as eighteen months or a year.  This can happen especially in cases where it seems like your condition is likely to improve in the very near future pending surgery or proper medical attention.

In order to keep your disability benefits it’s important that you continue to see your doctors regularly.  We recommend seeing a doctor at least every three months in order to maintain regular treatment. For a list of no/low cost medical clinics in your state, visit:

The purpose of social security disability is to provide medical care and financial assistance to those who become unable to work due to disability.  Hopefully, with proper medical care, a disabled person is able to get better and return to the work force.  If the claimant doesn’t get better, then he or she cannot return to work.  As long as your condition does not improve and this is documented in your medical records, then eligibility for disability benefits should not end.

Therefore, the most important thing for you to do in order to keep your disability benefits is to continue going to your doctor.  Social Security wants to know that disabled persons are trying to get better.  This is why it is important to maintain regular treatment and to comply with your doctor’s orders even after you have received an award for disability benefits.

Remember to:

1)      Go to your doctor(s) regularly (or at least every three months)

2)      Comply with doctors orders, i.e., take your medications, get XRAYs and blood work (etc.) done as the doctor orders, undergo and/or talk seriously about pros and cons of any suggested surgery or procedures.

3)      Let your doctor know if there are any changes in your condition or in the symptoms you are experiencing, for the better or for the worse.  If there are no changes, talk about that too!

4)      Refrain from drug, tobacco, and alcohol use:  Social Security also wants to know you aren’t doing anything that could possibly make your conditions worse.

When your claim comes up for review, if your condition has not improved to the point where you would be able to return to fulltime work and you have maintained regular treatment as discussed above, you should not lose your disability benefits.
