Social Security Disablility (SSDI) Appeals


Social Security Disability (SSD or SSDI) is essentially an insurance program provided by the Federal Government.  If you’ve been working recently, you’ve probably already paid your “premiums” in the form of FICA taxes.  If you can now no longer work due to a medical disability (including a mental health disability) you might be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.


Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration has erected a vast bureaucratic maze between you and your benefits.  This maze is filled with administrative pitfalls, filled with medical definitions, cross-references to statutes and regulations, and deadlines.  Thompson Law Offices has the experience navigating the Social Security Administration’s regulations and red tape to help you win your claim and get the benefits you deserve.

Continuing Disability Reviews (CDR)


The Social Security Administration will likely review your claim several years after you are approved.  This is called a Continuing Disability Review (CDR) and is a normal part of the process.  While many individuals are surprised or confused when they receive the CDR notice in the mail, it is not something to be alarmed about.


When you initially claimed your disability with Social Security, the burden was on you to prove that you were disabled.  Now, since you have already demonstrated your disability, the Social Security Administration must prove that there have been significant changes in your medical condition which make you not disabled.


Therefore, it is important that you continue your treatment as advised by your doctor.  Each visit to your doctor produces medical records with a date attached.  Thus, when it comes time for your CDR, you should still have a fair number of medical records to challenge Social Security if they claim you are no longer disabled.  (Of course, you should always follow your doctor’s medical advice and nothing on this site should be construed to mean otherwise).
