We are required to periodically conduct Continuing Disability Reviews for beneficiaries with disabilities. This process requires that beneficiaries complete a Continuing Disability Review packet, that we mail to beneficiaries, to help us update information about their medical conditions and recent treatments.
Additionally, we offer an online option for beneficiaries to complete the Disability Update Report form and provide any supporting documents about their medical treatment or work activities.
We designed this form with convenience in mind — and to save you time. You can access the online form at www.ssa.gov/ssa455-online-form. (Use either Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome for the best online experience.)
When you complete your Continuing Disability Review, you will need your
Social Security number, current address and phone number, and a valid email address to complete the form. Also, you must have received a request for an updated disability report in the mail.
Once you “Click to Sign,” you will receive an email from echosign.com asking you to confirm your digital signature. Check your junk folder if you don’t receive it within a few minutes. If your signature isn’t complete your form won’t be processed.
Please be sure to let your friends and loved ones know about this new online option.
NOTE: The mention of Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome is for informational purposes only and does not constitute an endorsement by the Social Security Administration.
