Are disability benefits permanent?

In most cases, no. The Social Security Administration (SSA) conducts continuing disability reviews (CDR) for disabled individuals receiving benefits. If you are being reviewed and subject to a CDR, it is important to provide the SSA with as much information as possible to continue receiving benefits. Failure to respond to requests for information may result in benefits being terminated. If benefits are terminated, individuals can file an appeal and request a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). Having an experienced attorney present at a hearing can help obtain a favorable result.
