    I just got a letter saying the are reviewing my case for my SS disibility, I am scared out of my wits. I am in no shape or form to work even part time.

    My therapist who has been coming to my home weekly is writing up a letter to attach to the form I am filling out, do you think that will cut any mustard.

    Unfortunatly, my current Dr. is fairly new and I don't have a good feel if she THINKS I am able to work or not.


    Any one have any feedback for me, will be appreciated.

    Thanks Day2

    Day2:
    I also had fear when filling out all of the SS forms.
    They sent me to doctors also, and that added to my stress.
    And I got two denial letters and had to go to the ALJ with a lawyer who I finally had to hire. He told me it would all go well because once you make it to that stage of the game you usually win. And I did. So persevere and realize it is stressful, but do not give up. That is what they want.

    I have been on the SS disability now for several years.......this is the review to see if I am now able to return to work, or if I am still eligible for disability.

    Its called the Disability Review report.
    I have often seen, and also contributed to people who were trying to receive the original disability, but have not seen anyone who is having a review after being on Social Security disability for any length of time.

    I am interested how that process works and if anyone has been deemed " cured" when they are not and what steps they had to take to fight the process. Or if it is just a formality review.

    Thanks NyroFan for responding though, :)

    Any others who have gone through the process?? Appreciate any info.

    Wish I could see your post when I am typing my reply back.....bad memory.

    That definately puts my mind at ease a bit.

    I will put it in God's hands and hope for the best.
