I got the short form right at the 3 year mark. My first cdr. I was approved on the record at the alj level. Didn`t have to appear before judge. I filled the form out and mailed it in a month ago. My profile is L and my score is 115. I am now 56 yrs. old. My main problem is meniere`s disease. I was diagnosed by two different ear drs. over 3 years ago. I was sent before to soc. sec. dr. He x-rayed my back and knees and did a few more tests. After that I was approved just on my record by the judge. Well, after filling out the short form, I did some research, I found out my primary code is for osteoarthitis and my second one is asthma. I listed my last three dr. visits as vertigo, throwing up etc. I can not afford to go to ear dr. anymore as I have no ins. I have been seeing a dr. at a local clinic and He has told me I am unable to work. My main question is, will I have a problem the way I filled the form out? And any idea how long they take to process the short form? Thanks

Welcome ranger:

It is hard to say how long they will take to process the short form. My understanding is  the short forms are sent to those selected by a computer model as ones that most likely will not require a full medical CDR. If you have had continued doctor's care, have not gone back to work or school, chances are your benefits will be continued.

Please let us know how long it takes to learn the results - and of course what they were.

Hi Ranger,

Welcome to the site....I am very curious to see the replies you get from other members who might be more familiar with CDRs...

Question, what does "My profile is L and my score is 115." refer to?? Just curious!

Please let us know what happens next on your case. It was really help us, help you, and help others to come.

Thanks for the welcome. The L and the 115 are profile scores assigned , I think by a computer after you are approved for ssdi. You are given a L, M OR H. Stands FOR LOW, MED, AND HIGH. The numbers range from 0 to 999.  If you are rated L and 115 you are considered unlikely to improve. I will keep everyone posted on the out come. According to the ss site they will reply to the form within 90 days. So...I was just wondering if anyone else has any insight into this.

Where in the code of Federal regulations are these ratings explained. I have been searching and cannot find the explanations. Thanks

Never mind I found the explanations in "POMS Section: DI 40502.001". Here is the link https://secure.ssa.gov/apps10/poms.nsf/lnx/0440502001

**scratches head**

I don't know why but it is next to impossible for me to decode the POMS.
