Cooperative Disability Investigations

The Cooperative Disability Investigations Unit (CDIU) investigates disability claims under Social Security Administrations Title II and Title XVI programs. The primary mission is to resolve questions of fraud on suspicious claims flagged by State disability examiners before they are paid. The CDI Unit also provides reports to disability examiners during continuing disability reviews (CDRs) of claims that are already being paid.

Using the Internet to Adjudicate Disability Claims

In this day and age, the Internet has become a ubiquitous and practical source of information for any investigator or finder of fact. When adjudicating a claim, however, an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) may not rely upon information obtained from the Internet or social media sites, whether from a computer or smartphone (Hallex I-2-5-69). Although the Internet has proven useful as a general source, any researcher should exercise caution when evaluating the credibility and veracity of information obtained from the Internet.
