What does it take to win social security?
You have to meet one (or more) of the 10 impairments listed by Social Security. For example, say you can’t use one of your limbs for significant weight-bearing, like losing a leg or having really bad knees. We can bring a doctor in to evaluate your case.
Can Social Security terminate your benefits?
Yes, they can. They will reexamine your case every 5-8 years. We will help guide you through this process.
I just got a call from Social Security asking for an update on my condition. Should I talk to them?
No. Always talk to an attorney first. They’ll try to get you to say that you’ve improved and then scrutinize (or take away) your benefits.
Is age a factor?
Yes. Anyone under 50 who makes a claim will be scrutinized intensely.
Do I need to appear at a hearing?
COVID hearings are 100% by telephone. Before the pandemic, people did have to appear in person at the hearing, which will likely resume at some point. People can also opt for a video hearing.
Is Social Security going broke and what will happen then?
If the program loses funding, it will be paid directly out of the national treasury.
