DI 28080.015 Example of Notice for a Title II Continuing Disability Review (CDR) Pre-determination

SSA reviewed your record to see if you are still entitled for Social Security disability insurance benefits. To get benefits, you must be unable to do any substantial gainful activity (SGA). Substantial gainful activity is physical or mental work you can do for pay or profit. It can be full-time or part-time work.

A State agency, Disability Determination Services (DDS), rather than the persons or agencies that gave us reports, made this determination. Based on the information in file, DDS plans to decide that you are no longer disabled and can do SGA starting in (date). You will be entitled to receive benefits for (date) and for the next 2 months.
