What is your CDR schedule poll
« on: July 29, 2017, 09:14:57 PM »
Obviously, CDRs can come early, on time, or late and this won't be a very scientific poll, but it might be fun for curiosity's sake. This poll was originally suggested by member *Hopeful* in another thread.

The review schedule recommended in my ALJ approval letter is 18 months. My award letter states I will be reviewed in August 2018 which is 2 years and 7 months from my January 2016 approval letter date. So I'm going to answer "1-3 years" for this poll.

When I was approved it was 7 yrs. I received the short form in 2011. The letter I received after said I would receive another one in 3 yrs. That was over 6 yrs ago. Age also plays a part in a CDR. I will be 64 in a few months.

My letter said 5 - 7 years. I have been on benefits for a bit over 3 years. I am 58. I wonder how they determine if its 5 years or 7 years?

My letter said 3+ years.  3+ years seems kind of a broad range. That can mean 3years, 4 years or even five years. The longer the better. I am 51.

shaks24, with your age it is highly doubtful you will receive a CDR.

When I was approved at the age of 58, my letter said 5 to 7 years.
But I triggered a short form review after only 2 years, because I was working part-time....and my income was very near the maximum allowable.

shaks24, with your age it is highly doubtful you will receive a CDR.

Even though I have been on benefits for 3 years already? At the 5 year mark I will be 60 and at the 7 year mark 62. Do you know how they decide if its 5 years or 7? I am on dialysis so unless I get a transplant or a miracle my benefits would continue after step 2 of the cdr as dialysis meets a listing. I am just curious.

shaks24, I'm going on my experience and others I have seen here. I remember one member, 60 years old, receiving a CDR. The decision is based on medical records and expected improvement. Age plays a factor. Even with a transplant, your age is a factor. If you were 20-50, it would be different.

My award letter (2013) says 5-7 years,  improvement not expected. I was approved first application at age 55.

We are about in the same boat as to age, length of time on benefits and CDR diary dates. Hopefully what Just Me posted will come to fruition and we will never see one.  :Main09:
