This review could take any number of directions; your questionnaire could result in a simple review of your records, Social Security could schedule an appointment for you to visit a doctor for evaluation, or your case could be sent back to the State disability agency for review. The best thing for you to do when you receive this questionnaire is ask your doctor to write a letter stating that there has been no improvement in your condition and you are unable to work. Send this letter along with your completed Disability Update Report back to the local Social Security office. After you return the report and the letter your disability review should be over.
