Disability Hearing

2006. Disability Hearing

2006.1 When can a disability hearing be held?

A disability hearing can be held if:

  1. You have been receiving benefits based on a medical impairment that causes you to be disabled (in Title XVI cases, blind or disabled);

  2. We have made an initial or revised determination, based on medical factors, that you are no longer disabled (in Title XVI cases, blind or disabled) because the impairment:

    1. Has ceased;

    2. Did not exist; or

    3. Is no longer disabling; and

  3. You make a timely request for reconsideration of the initial or revised determination.

2006.2 What issues does the disability hearing address?

The disability hearing addresses only the initial or revised determination, based on medical factors, that you are not now disabled (in Title XVI cases, blind or disabled).

2006.3 Who conducts the disability hearing?

The hearing is conducted by a disability hearing officer who was not involved in making the decision you are appealing.

2006.4 How does the hearing officer announce the results of the hearing?

The disability hearing officer issues a written reconsidered determination.

2006.5 What other outcomes are possible?

In some cases, the disability hearing officer may ask for further development, SSA may make a determination based on work activity, or the disability hearing officer's decision may be reviewed.

It is not clear to me. "Remanded" and "approved" seem to be in conflict.

Please contact the SSA directly for your particular case.
