A “medical improvement standard” was also added for the disability review process stating that an individual’s disability benefits may be terminated with the basis of substantial evidence which shows that impairments have medically improved and the person concerned can already handle salaried work.
Various laws have also been implemented in order to enhance the DI programs like, the Social Security Disability Benefits Reform Act of 1984, which revised the mental impairment listings. The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, set criteria that were more restrictive for childhood stability.
