The following is meant to be a brief description of why your benefits were taken away, why more people receiving benefits (millions) will have their benefits ceased in the upcoming decade.

You received benefits. Great news. In the decision it may state a review will be made in 18 or 36 months, for example. It might state “medical improvement is expected.” Even if it does not state this specifically in your award, the Social Security Administration has a right to review cases at ANY time. They will pull your medical records to see 1) if you have still been treating and 2) check if your medical condition has improved. If you have not been treating with any providers, they will likely cease benefits, causing you to need to appeal the decision and essentially go through the process of obtaining benefits again! If the Social Security Administration believes your medical records show improvement they will make a finding you are no longer disabled and cut off benefits.

Have you been working? Your benefits can cease automatically if you made AT ANY TIME OR MONTH, over what Social Security has termed “Substantial Gainful Activity.” Click HERE to see the current amount and amount by year, currently it is $1260 PER MONTH GROSS (Before Taxes) for non-blind individuals.

On November 18, 2019, the Trump Administration proposed a Social Security proposal that would have 2,600,000 Social Security cases reviewed for eligibility. In other words, 2.6 million people in America currently on Social Security Disability benefits would have their cases pulled, CURRENT medical records reviewed, etc, to see if those people are still disabled. This would result, likely, in hundreds of thousands if not more, depending on the complete proposal once submitted, to lose their disability benefits. The article can be found in full by clicking HERE. We are not taking a political view merely pointing out that there is a potential for MILLIONS of people who are currently receiving benefits to be kicked off of Social Security Disability benefits in the next decade. This will most likely affect those who are on disability and young (under the age of 50) and those who are on disability for mental illness. If I fell under one of those categories I would reengage in medical treatment to face the potential of an upcoming review.
