I have been on disability for many years.  I had heard from my neighbor, some months after the fact, that he had been called and asked about my abilities.  Nothing came of it, but this man didn't really know me or anything about my condition.  How they got a neighbors number, I never did find out. 

For me, the worst thing about being on disability is the followup paperwork that has to be done for the secondary disability from my old company.  It is tedious and redundent and I have trouble with the doctors being willling to do it.  Some of my docs in the past have even enclosed a letter that my condition may worsen but never better so the forms are irrelevant.  But to no avail, at least once a year they send them to me.

Hope that helps.

Hey Pepichar

I can't say it's normal practice, but i have heard of this. Not generally as a way of normal business, but maybe when they've been contacted and referred to u'r case as a possible problem. I am not suggesting anyone has contacted their office about u, but that is one possibility. U may want to contact u'r disability representative and discuss this with them. I'm not at all versed with disability, so please don't just take my word on calling them, but it may be a way of alleviated u'r worries.

I've been on disability now for about a year and have never had any problems, I thought I saw a guy looking through binoculars once when I was taking the trash out but I was a little drugged up and probably paranoid. Are you afraid they will catch you on a day when your feeling good?

yes what about the days when you are feeling a little normal. they are not many so when you get them you have to make the best of them.
