Sometimes paperwork errors occur which cause SSD benefits to be delayed. You should receive your first benefits check within 2 or 3 months of the approval date. If this does not occur, you and/or your Ocala, Florida disability lawyer should look into the matter.
You should receive the Notice of Reward within 45 days of your approval. SSA recommends that claimants who do not promptly receive this notice send a fax to the office handling the case. This may be the Office of Central Operations in Baltimore, MD. Send the fax to the appropriate processing unit, called a module. Your Social Security number will determine which module is handling your claim.
If you do not receive a response within 45 more days, then you may need to send another fax, this time to the module manager. In long delays, you or your Ocala, Florida disability lawyer should call the Center for Program Support at 410-966-0715.
Your or your lawyer may also discuss your claim with a supervisor at the closest SSA office. This individual then may make an inquiry with the payment center.
Yet another way to resolve the problem is to contact a congressional office. Each Senator’s and Congressman’s office has a staff member who deals with SSA matters. This should give you some idea of how many Social Security matters occur. An inquiry made by a congressional office carries a degree of clout.
If you are disabled and cannot work any job for at least 12 months, you may qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Call Ocala, Florida disability lawyer CJ Henry for a review of your claim today at (352) 304-5300.
