Redeterminations Dropping
Posted in: Benefits on September 2nd, 2011

benefits approvedThere are different requirements for people who receive Supplemental Security Income as compared to Social Security Disability Insurance.  Both programs have several requirements in order to keep receiving disability benefits, and it is important to be aware of the differences between these programs and what information that you are required to furnish in order to keep these benefits coming.

Do Redeterminations Work?

When it comes to Supplemental Security Insurance, those who receive these benefits are required to report changes in their income, living situations, and resources whenever they occur.  There have been reports suggesting that these reports of “redetermination” have steadily been dropping over the past few years – the data indicates that from 2003 to 2008, as the number of individuals receiving Supplemental Security Income increased, redeterminations dropped 60 percent.

This lowering in the amount of redetermination reports is most troubling, particularly with the economy as poor as it is and the amount of money that is available for both Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance.  Be sure that if either you or a loved one is receiving Supplemental Security Income that you abide by the redetermination rules – failure to do so could result in you losing your benefits when the government finds you.  The redetermination requirements are set to become more and more stringent in upcoming years, so be sure to start organizing your finances now.  Offering good documentation today will save you a lot of trouble in the future.

It has been estimated that if redetermination for Supplemental Security Income is carried out more regularly, taxpayers would have saved about 3.3 billion dollars during the fiscal years of 2008 and 2009.  With this in mind, it seems as though the Social Security Administration will be stricter, so watch out!
