Title: Exemption of Work Activity as a Basis for a Continuing Disability Review (Ticket to Work and Work Incentives Improvement Act of 1999) (725P) 
Abstract: We propose to amend our regulations to explain how we implement section 221(m) of the Scoial Security Act for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) beneficiaries, including SSDI beneficiaries who also receive Supplemental Security Income benefits based on disability. Section 221(m) provides a work incentive for certain SSDI beneficiaries by eliminating the scheduling of continuing disability medical reviews solely because of the beneficiary's work activity, once the beneficiary has received SSDI benefits for 24 months. (Such beneficiaries will continue to be subject to regularly scheduled continuing disability reviews, work investigations, and benefit termination due to earnings from work activity at the level of substantial gainful activity.) Section 221(m) also affects certain standards specified in our regulations, which we use when we determine whether a beneficiary's disabiltiy continues or ends.
