Good afternoon,
I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
How often you will be reviewed (have a continuing disability re-evaluation [CDR]) depends on the diagnosis that was given resulting in you getting your disability rating and benefits.
The review is generally every 3 years unless you are either over 55 or you have a condition that is unlikely to get better, in which case the CDR is every 7 years.
As for the income that you are allowed to earn while you are on SSDI, let me explain how that works.
Social Security has what is called a trial work period. It is a period of 9 separate months where you may earn as much as you want. In 2015, any months you earn less than $780 gross wages in do not count. After you have had a total of 9 months where you earned more than $780 gross, you will be able to work and continue to receive benefits so long as you do not earn more than $1,090 per month.
Here is a link to a social security site which explains this in greater detail: http://www.ssa.gov/redbook/eng/ssdi-only-employment-supports.htm
