EXHIBIT 1 - TITLE II BENEFIT CONTINUATION ELECTION STATEMENT

I have been advised of my right to elect to have my disability benefits and Medicare, if applicable, continued to me, pending the outcome of my appeal of the decision that my disability has ceased. I understand that benefits can also be continued to everyone qualified on my Social Security record whom I have specified below.

I understand that if I lose my appeal, I will be asked to pay this money back, including all checks received after my period of disability ended (2 months after the cessation date), through the month such benefits were received if the appeal is not decided in my favor.

I have the right to ask that I not have to pay the money back. If I do ask, and if it is determined by SSA that my appeal was made in good faith and that I need my income and resources for ordinary and necessary living expenses or that other factors apply, I will not have to pay the money back. I also understand that SSA will provide me with more information about waiver of recovery of an overpayment, if I would like it.

I will not be asked to pay back any Medicare benefits I receive while my appeal is being decided.

If I win my appeal, any money I am owed will be paid.

While my appeal is pending and my benefits are being continued, I agree to report promptly to Social Security any changes which may affect my right to receive benefits, such as work activity or any change in the status of dependents receiving benefits on my record.

I understand that if I turn down continued benefits during the specified 10-day period after the initial cessation, I will not have the chance (if the 10-days have passed) to elect continued benefits again until I get the notice of reconsideration decision on my disability appeal.

I understand that if I do not elect continued benefits when I request reconsideration, but later request a hearing before an administrative law judge (ALJ) and elect continued benefits until an ALJ decision is made, that continued benefits may be paid no earlier than the month of the reconsideration determination or the month of election, whichever is later.

I acknowledge that I understand my responsibilities and that I have been given a copy of this signed statement of my choice of benefit continuation options:
