We are looking for working-age adults who receive SSDI or SSI payments now and are currently going through the continuing disability review process or stopped receiving disability payments due to medical improvement. Your participation in an interview will help SSA ensure the new survey questions are clear and understandable.

The interview will last no more than 90 minutes and will take place virtually, over Microsoft Teams. Participants will receive a $75 prepaid VISA gift card for their time at the end of the interview. Participants will be asked demographic questions to ensure a diverse group of respondents.

SSA is working with Westat, a research firm located in Maryland, to conduct these interviews.  If you are interested, please call Westat toll-free at 1-855-516-3665. Please only include your first name and a phone number beginning with the area code where you can be reached when leaving a voicemail. Someone from Westat will return your call. Please understand that we may not be able to interview everyone who expresses interest.
