Receiving Correspondence From Social SecurityBy Kenton Koszdin on July 18, 2018 | In Disability Insurance
Once a claimant files an application for disability benefits, whether such application is for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), he or she can plan on expecting a multitude of informational letters, notices, and acknowledgments from the Social Security Administration (SSA).
More than a few applicants are intimidated by this inundation of correspondence, some of it of routine importance, some of it of vital importance, like correspondence that requires a claimant to submit a response, usually for the purpose of assisting the SSA in making a determination about eligibility for disability benefits.
Applicants for disability benefits must never disregard any correspondence received from the SSA. The wisest course of action is to immediately open and read anything received in the mail from the SSA. If you have any questions or concerns about what you received, call your attorney as soon as possible.
Do not put it off for later by placing it in a pile of mail that you’ll read later on in time. If you are truly serious about receiving approval for disability benefits, you must prioritize reading and understanding this material without delay!
This is of the utmost importance when any correspondence refers to some request or requirement that involves a set time frame for a response or, perhaps more importantly, an appeal. An experienced disability attorney can help any applicant understand the meaning and significance of any letter that he or she receives from the SSA. In most situations, an applicant’s attorney will have already received a copy of such letter. But this doesn’t always occur! It should never be assumed that your attorney has received the same letter and you should always verify receipt immediately.
Applicants for disability benefits need the assistance of an experienced disability attorney to help navigate the seemingly endless trail of documentation set forth by the filing of their disability application.
