Questions After a Favorable Decision: Do you have any advice for dealing with the Social Security Administration to make sure I keep my benefits?

  • Published: February 19, 2012

After you receive approval for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration, or SSA, you may feel a range of emotions including joy and relief. However, you may also be concerned about whether it will be difficult to continue dealing with the SSA and what you can do to make sure your benefits are not cut off.

Generally, your Ocala disability lawyer will inform you that it is easier to deal with the SSA after being approved for benefits than before. The SSA will periodically review your case to determine if you are still disabled and eligible for benefits. So long as you provide the SSA with the information it requests and continue to see your doctor regularly, you should not have a problem. Very few claimants receive a letter from the SSA notifying them that their disability benefits are going to cease.

In addition, there are certain things you can do to minimize problems with the SSA. You should read all information that you receive from the SSA completely. SSA booklets can provide you with valuable information regarding your benefits. Pay close attention to any information requested by the SSA and make sure to provide it promptly and in writing.  Keep a copy of anything you send to the SSA.  Also keep all documents that you receive from the SSA in a safe, easily accessible location.

You may want to visit your local Social Security office to speak to a representative in person if you have questions regarding your benefits. Many times, it is easier to speak to someone in person, rather than on the phone. Moreover, information you receive by calling the SSAs toll free number is not always accurate.

If you have concerns regarding whether you will be able to continue to receive disability benefits, contact an Ocala disability lawyer. Depending on your case, a lawyer may have additional recommendations regarding things you can do to help ensure you continue to receive your monthly disability benefits.
