SSI review

Asked over 1 year ago - Lindenhurst, NY

I am on SSI right now I filed for disability though.The administrative judge said my case will be reviewed in 2 or 3 years. 1. I got a letter from the SSA saying they are going to review it now at 6 months. Do they usually do that? They still owe me 4,000 grand from retro. Next month is the next installment.

    Answered . Reviews occur all the time. Sometimes they are sparked by receiving information that a person has additional assets and other times they seem almost random. As long as your circumstances have stayed the same there should be no problem. Do not be alarmed.

    Answered . My colleagues are correct. SSA allowed to review claims every so often, they are actually REQUIRED to review every claim within certain time frames. and while the ALJ can recommend tiome frames, it is up to SSA to decide when a case is reviewed, not the Judge.

    Sorry I do not have a better answer.

    Answered . Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a means-tested program, for which beneficiaries report financial circumstances on an ongoing basis, and reviews can be triggered by the information reported. The ALJ was probably referring to review for medical improvement.
