HOW DO CONTINUING DISABILITY REVIEWS WORK
If the child is under age 18, we will do a CDR every three years if we expect the child's condition may improve. We may also do a CDR if we do not expect the child's condition to improve.
If we decided the child was disabled based on low birth weight, we will do a CDR by age 1. However, we will schedule the child's CDR for a later date if at the time of the initial determination we decide that improvement is unlikely to have happened by age 1.
When we perform the CDR, we may ask the child's representative payee to show evidence that the child is, and has been, getting treatment that is medically necessary and available for his or her
If the child's representative payee refuses without good cause to show us this evidence, we may look for another representative payee. We may pay the child directly, if he or she is old enough.
