The Social Security Administration (SSA) has extended its deadline for comments on its proposed rule to expand the use of continuing disability reviews (CDR). Currently, SSA reviews eligibility for Old Age Survivors and Disability Insurance (OASDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits more or less frequently based on three different categories: every 6-18 months if medical improvement expected (MIE), every 3 years if medical improvement possible (MIP), and every 5-7 years if medical improvement not expected (MINE). The proposed rule adds a category called “medical improvement likely” (MIL) in which reviews must occur every two years and requires review for people in the MINE category every six years. The deadline for comments has been extended to January 31. Learn more.
