A small percentage of incapacity clients may qualify for a “Three-Year Review” decision.  This is a continual incapacity approval for individuals with certain medical factors.  These individuals cannot meet the standard disability criteria, but their incapacity is considered ongoing and improvement is not expected.  “Three-Year Review” decisions will have a three-year approval.


·         When a review is due on a medical with a “Three-Year Review” designation, complete a review at the end of the three-year approval period and submit the review to the MEU.  These individuals do occasionally improve and return to work, or are approved for SSI.  Bulletin 22, FA-10-11
