Q: Is the Social Security Administration required to give notice prior to suspending your benefits?

Per the Code of Federal Regulations § 404.1595 they will give notice within reasonable time from the suspension, 10 days (I think) unless one of the three items mentioned in part (d) had happened, which they did not.

A: According to the Code of Federal Regulations § 404.1595, the Social Security Administration is required to give notice to an individual prior to suspending their benefits. The notice must be given within a reasonable time prior to the suspension, typically at least 30 days in advance, unless certain exceptions apply. These exceptions are listed in part (d) of the regulation and must be met for the notice requirement to be waived. If none of the exceptions apply and notice was not given, the individual may have grounds to challenge the suspension of their benefits.
