Clovis, CA asked in Social Security for California

Q: When I applied for Disability on a duel application FOR benefits SSA determined me medically disabled and permanent SO

My question is then there is only one medical approval for either SSI OR SSDI WHEN I first applied and I was only given SSI BUT a few months later IRS AMENDED MY EARNINGS AND then I qualified for SSDI SO I don’t have to redo another medical review by DDS A SECOND TIME OR JUST A REOPENING because DDS already determined me disabled right?

A: Good morning Clovis,

Social Security may review your disability status every year or so to make sure that you are still "disabled" under their rules. They generally do this by reviewing your medical records. If they see anything alarming in your medical records which may indicate that you are no longer "disabled," then they may send you for medical evaluation. I hope this helps!

Kind regards,

Cory DeLellis, Esq.
