    How do you know when an "audit" is over? I've completed the preliminary medical questionnaire, but that was nearly a month ago and I haven't heard a word since...

    You will receive a letter stating the results of the audit and any further instructions they may have for you.

    It took SS about 6 weeks to mail me a letter after I submitted my questionnaire, and they just said they were going to do nothing further for now (that was about 2 years ago) - hopefully you'll get a positive answer in a week or 2 -

    what was going on since I am in the midst of buying a home... They said my questionnaire had been received by them in mid October and that my file was at my state's headquarters pending further review. The last time I was audited I had to see a shrink, not a medical doc, who asked me all kinds of what I thought were irrelevant questions. This time, the questionnaire was entirely different: much shorter, dealing more with recent Dr's appts and the purpose of them vs my own subjective opinion of my condition. It just seems like a really long time to wait without ANY correspondence.
    The real kicker is that if I receive a letter denying future benefits, I have only 10 days from the date of receipt to dispute it. Being in the midst of moving out of state (to a climate where I can function on about half as much pain medication) could be a real problem. It's taken me two years to get this far...

    ILoveGreen, Ihear you! I don't think I could get anything done in only ten days anymore. I thought we had 30 days to respond to them. I wonder if they have made changes and hope people won't get their responses in and then they can cut the number of people collecting disability. Hmmmm.

    for your input. I will wait as the SSA officer advised. I have a legitimate condition which is well-documented. The timing is never good for an audit, and mine was overdue.
