review from social security

I know that every situation is different but can anyone tell me the time period it took to be reviewed when already recieving benefits. I went to their doctor almost a month ago and haven't heard anything from them. Just was wondering if it took month and months. Thanks so much.

Re: review from social security

I'm not sure what you mean by "already receiving benefits". Are they reviewing you to see if you're STILL eligible? Or did they grant you partial benefits during the waiting period and the examination was for initial benefits? Anyway if they were doing an examination for REVIEW (which seems weird), meaning you've had benefits for quite a while, they can pretty much take as long as they want to get back to you. What you ought to do in order to get it off your mind is call your local office and ask "Where is the decision in process". It's not like they would "forget about you" if they had made a decision to deny you. So you wouldn't be "stirring the pot". If this is an initial decision I think they have 6 months. [I've been on disability 3 times, gone back to work 2x and just got reapproved in Sept. 2005]

[Michael-XLH] I applied for SSD 1 year ago and I'm still waiting for the
advocate judge hearing. Advise-to be patient and get a lawyer.
