CDR review after 60 years of age
« on: January 20, 2013, 03:35:05 PM »
Hi.....I was awarded SSDI for severe spinal stenosis at the age of 60. In my award letter nothing was stated about a CDR or evaluation, MIE, MINE etc. My guess is I am in the MINE category but not sure? I was awarded SSDI after medical exam from a physician representing social security department. Any ideas on whether I will ever recieve a CDR notice before my normal retirement age of 66?
Thanks

I was also awarded at age 60 and have the same question.  Like your award letter, mine had NOTHING about MIE, MINE, MIP etc etc..  Folks on this forum suggested I call my local office.  The first time I did that I was told that if it didn't specify, it would be 3 - 5  years.   I called again a couple of weeks later and was told that my case would (or did he say "could") be reviewed any where from 6 to 18 months.  So, I have no idea.  I know it should not even matter, but it just seems like a loose end.  And as much energy, sleepless nights, panic attacks, hurt feelings etc etc that I put into this process, and as exacting as SSA is, there should be NO LOOSE ENDS.
Anyway, glad you're here

Hi,

My award letter actually said a review would be done at 5 to 7 years. I was 56 at time of approval (for severe joint dysfunction and severe inflammatory arthritis). I got my SS file on CD a couple of weeks ago, in the file the examiner listed me as MIP with a 3 year review. So I have 2 documents that say different things, hopefully, due to age, none of us will have to go through a major review but I know where you're coming from when you don't have the info, or there's a discrepancy.  :Main13:

I am also under the understanding that it is 3-5 if nothing is written.  It is also rare to go through one the closer you get to retirement age.
I speak from experience not expertise.

Thanks for the reply and Welcome Djeanne

 Everything I have read says once you are approaching retirement , 60 years or older, and have been awarded SSDI you will be considered a MINE category which is 5 to 7 years for CDR. Of course that means you will be within a year of your full benefit retirement age when a CDR is given which in my case is 66. This is perhaps why nothing is stated about a CDR  in the award letter it would be senseless to do a CDR at 65 to 67 years old.
