SSDI Continuing Disability Review
« on: September 23, 2014, 03:29:34 PM »
Hello,

I am wondering if anyone in the forums who has been awarded SSDI due to HIV has had to go through a "Continuing Disability Review."  In my award letter it states that my disability would be reviewed in 5-7 years, but technically speaking, the SSA is supposed to screen out cases that were awarded due to HIV (https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0428003005).  I'm told, though, that occasionally HIV disabled do, in fact, get flagged for CDR. 

I'm coming up on my fifth year and I'm getting a bit stressed out about this.  Any information would be helpful.
One good turn gets most of the blankets.

Yes, I have gotten CDRs -- probably 3 of them during 12 years. It's not a big deal though it freaked me out the first time so I sat down and filled it out with a case worker. The questions are routine, and they're mostly checking to make sure you are regularly seeing a doctor for HIV treatment. Any question where it asks if you are better just reply "same" or "worse".
