Scheduled CDR
« on: April 20, 2017, 05:05:35 AM »
Approved in August 2010 my first review is scheduled for August.  Mental issues.  Original Psychiatrist retired and new psychiatrists seem not even to see the same things initial psychiatrist saw when he wrote in my chart that I will probably never be able to work again.  I have been seeing psychiatrist and psychologist every other month for the past year.  I am concerned.  Will any review ask for my appointment history or will they straight up request records again.  I will turn 61 in July if that matters.

Sorry being paranoid.  Thank you

It depends on if you get a short form or a long form, which you won't know until you actually receive it.

Given your age & 7 year review schedule, I think it is likely that you will get a short form that asks about treatment dates first. (But a small percentage of people who would otherwise get short forms get long forms for Quality Control purposes too.) 

As long as you are continuing treatment & have not improved, then it will not matter if your exact diagnosis changed.

I agree with helper....One of the most Important Factors that social security uses when conducting a CDR is if a person is continueing with medical treatment..Seeing your doctors regulary and takeing any meds that are presrcribed to you...If you aren't seeing a doctor or takeing meds than Social Security will see this as a sign that your medical condition has improved and could end ssdi benefits....
