How Difficult Is it to Pass a Social Security Continuing Disability Re-Evaluation (CDR)?

Social Security must abide by the CDR rules, which require you to show medical improvement and an ability to work.

After you are approved for disability benefits, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will conduct a continuing disability review (CDR) every few years to see if your condition has improved. (In most cases, your CDR will occur every three years, but if you are over 55 or if you have a condition that is unlikely to get better, your CDR will occur every seven years.  A CDR can also be triggered if you begin earning too much money from working (the SSA checks whether you are making over the  SGA  amount during periodic "redeterminations"), unless you are enrolled in a  return-to-work plan for disability recipients. For more, see how often disability reviews happen.
