How the SSA Decides Continued Disability
If you are receiving Social Security disability benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will periodically check in on the status of your disability. They do this to make sure you are still disabled and continue to be eligible to receive benefits. For the most part, people whose health has not improved or are still unable to work will continue to receive their benefits. The SSA’s goal here is to stop the delivery of benefits to those who are no longer eligible to receive them.

What Will the SSA Do?
The SSA will acquire information relevant to your disability from your doctor and medical records. They will use this information in order to determine whether or not you are still disabled. To investigate whether your disability still prevents you from working, the SSA will seek records concerning:
- Medical treatments you have received
- What your doctor’s opinion on your disability is
- What your medical tests show
Unless it can be determined that you are still disabled based on what this investigation reveals, they will call you in for a medical examination. If they determine you are able to work, they will take away your benefits.
If you have had your Social Security disability benefits revoked, you may be able to appeal this decision. An experienced Indiana Social Security disability lawyer from Hankey Marks & Crider, P.C. can help you through the difficult appeals process.
