I would like to see a poll of how often people have reviews? It seems 3-5 is pretty common? Can we make a poll?

Curiosity is a wonderful thing.  It has been the impetus for many amazing inventions.  Curiosity is a dangerous thing.  It has been the cause of many accidental deaths.  Curiosity can bring great pleasure and learning or it can be a colossal waste of time. 

"Can we make a poll?"

Obviously, the answer is "Yes".  One big question comes to mind, however: What would be the purpose of such a poll?  Would it simply satisfy idle curiosity, or would it serve some purpose that readers could use in directing their lives? 

If such a poll were undertaken, would the responses be numerous enough to be statistically valid and useful?  How?

If the real question is "How does SSA determine diary dates?" There are multiple Program Operations Manual System references dealing with that question.  One such reference is https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0426525000.  Another is https://secure.ssa.gov/poms.nsf/lnx/0426525001.

Additional Info: My Different Perspective comes from a lifetime of being near, working with and for those with disabilities, working for the Easter Seal Society, working for the Disability Determination Services (20+ years) and working as a case assistant to an attorney who, until he retired, worked on SSA disability cases exclusively and have attended approximately 185 Hearings. I have great empathy for the truly disabled and greater antipathy for those who try to game or scam the system. With my background, I quickly make distinctions between the two. I am ready to admit my error as soon as the evidence proves me wrong. Any posts I make are based on my experience, memory and current research. Anything, particularly opinions, I post should be verified by someone who has access to the entire case record and not just selected shorts offered by those seeking information, preferably by a competent attorney or non-attorney representative who thoroughly understands SSA law.

I understand DP's points and they are well taken. However, for those interested in a little bit of fun, I set up a poll here: http://ssdfacts.com/forum/index.php/topic,22502.0.html

I completely agree and see his point as well.

How do we submit requested polls? I was wondering if we could do a poll on whether people get backpay first or monthly payment first? TIA!
