still paranoid; lamenting OCD
« on: August 10, 2017, 07:23:00 PM »
So, as I have posted many times, my first 7 year CDR is due now, in August but here is the 10th and I've heard nothing.
Maybe no big deal for most people but I am the poster child for worrying.
My experience with Social Security is that they have always been relatively punctual.  My sister just had her first 5 year CDR recently and it was spot on the money as scheduled just a few months ago.
Is Social Security ever fashionably "late" or can I venture to guess that if my review does not come by end of month that I am getting a "pass?"
Thank you for input.

My first cdr was supposed to be in December but it never came until like April.  I wouldn't worry, from what I have experienced they have never been on time.

CDRs can be early, late, or on time.  As long as you are continuing medical treatment, you will be ready whenever it comes.

Hi Mokus - you may not even get a CDR since you're 61 now. If you do get one, it will almost definitely be the short form which you will just fill out with your last 3 doctor appointments and answer a few other questions and return to them. You don't need to send them any medical records or anything like that. Chances are after that you will never see another short-form CDR and will go straight onto full retirement benefits at your regular retirement age (which varies by month and year of birth). After that happens you will never have to worry about a CDR again.

Also, short form CDRs are mailed out in February, June and October, so you have until October to see if you'll be getting a CDR this year.
