By review I assume that you are already receiving SS benefits. The reviews I've went through are very standard procedure. Twice I have been asked to see one of their doctors in order to determine that the disability has not improved. I know these things can make you a little anxious, but in my case, I knew their findings would not reveal any improvements, so I just jumped throught the hoops, so to speak. This year I received a letter stating that no review will be required from now on. What a relief! It was more of a hassle for me than anything else. Hope yours goes well. Relax. Even if the determination goes against you, you can always appeal.....franjo
