Usually this is done when you don't have enough medical records to support a favorable decision.

Re: disability update report

Answer it based on how you feel. You can always say your bipolar is the same as before. I would give the dr a heads up because they may send a letter for he/she to complete. Don't worry about...

Re: SSDI Hearing

It takes a while for the decision to be written and finalized. The judge at my hearing told me I was approved but it still 4-6 weeks to get the offical letter from ssa. Hang in there.
