During your annual medical recertification evaluation, your doctor noted that your disability has dissipated and that you are now able to go back to your job or some other job. Can your benefits be cut-off or terminated based on your doctor's indications?

Absolutely.  If your doctor has indicated in your annual medical recertification evaluation that you have regained your ability to work in your job or any gainful job for that matter, your benefits may cease.  It will depend on the definition of disability in your policy.
