Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.

Yes. If you have filed an appeal, SSA may send you a request for more information via request to complete authorization form so that SSA can get additional information from your health care providers. For more information on the appeals process, click here.

Goodluck with your case.

Im already receiving benefits, they did a CDR last year and said I was no longer disabled I appealed while cessation to continue benefits 18 month later I get this form-SSA-887. Why did it take so long to receive this form, with my ALJ hearing nov1(two weeks from now). Could there be some incompetency involved in how my claim is being held??!
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the information.

I do not know for sure why you received the notice late. The notice could have falling through the cracks. However, you need to still complete the form and submit it following the instructions given on the notice received with the form and let Social Security Administration deal with the delay in getting the information from your health care providers. If you have current notes from your doctors make sure to bring the documents to the hearing in case the Administrative Law Judge wants to see them.

Your payment information for the call request failed. You need to contact customer service to resolve the payment issue if you still want me to call you. Phone calls are at additional costs.

Thank you!

Could the delay, cause them to push back my hearing date(for the third time) to another date, because DDS don't have all required documents/info necessary before appearing before AMiNISTRATIVE LAW JUDGE??
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 1 year ago.

It could. However, you would not know that if you do not complete the form and contact the hearing office regarding your concerns.

Iast question, can I contact someone from the field office.? Im in Louisiana and when I initially applied for SSDI(thru a local office) I found out that some presented medical(the 13 page application) evidence was not keyed into computer by local office. Omitted from my files.
Expert:  Phillips Esq. replied 1 year ago.

You can. However, if your case has been scheduled for a hearing, the office you should be contacting will be the hearing office. Click here to get the contact information of your hearing office if you do not already have it.
