    Though the reality is sometimes less than the expectation, Social Security strives to conduct continuing disability reviews of disability benefit recipients every 3 years.  Until recently, this required the Claimant being reviewed to complete a Continuing Disability Review mailer to update medical treatment or work attempts.

    Now Social Security offers on on-line option to update information and provide supporting documents.  SSA recommends Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome for the best online experience.

    A Claimant will need a Social Security number, current address and phone number and a valid e-mail address to complete the form.  A request for an updated disability report received in the mail is also required to complete the process.

    Once the form is completed hit “Click to Sign”.  An email will be received within a few minutes asking for confirmation of the digital signature.  The signature is not complete  and the form will not be processed until the instructions in the email are completed.

    Call today if you have questions about the Michigan Social Security Disability Attorney and Lawyer Services provided by William Crawforth.
