Medical Improvement Not Expected (MINE)

Medical Improvement Not Expected (MINE) is one of three categories into which you will be placed once your disability application is approved (the other two are Medical Improvement Possible (MIP) and Medical Improvement Expected (MIE)). Cases in the MIE group are not expected to improve and people in this group can expect eligibility reviews every 7 years.

If the review finds improvements, then the SSDI recipient can be moved into another category, such as MIP or MIE. If there is enough improvement then recipients may no longer be eligible to receive SSDI benefits.
