Social Security: Comments to SSA on CDR Rule Due January 31

The Social Security Administration’s (SSA) proposed rule to expand the use of continuing disability reviews (CDR) is still open for public comment. 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 2 years and requires review for people in the MINE category every 6 years. The deadline for comments has been extended to January 31. Learn more. Submit your comments and view sample comments here.
