If you were denied your Social Security Benefits during Covid-19.
Although it has been in place already, the Social Security Administration judges can host hearings by video or teleconference. This is important during the Covid era.
How does it work?
In order to get a hearing, you or your representative need to keep in touch with the administration. Let them know that you want your case heard as soon as possible in front of an Administrative Law Judge.
We discussed this here, but I would like to reiterate the importance of:
A) Not giving up;
B) Exercising your right of appeal in front of an administrative law judge (having your day in court);
C) And hiring an attorney to assist you;
D) and also consider the fact that there are attorneys who can host teleconferences or video conferences from their office.
Why hire a lawyer?
A lawyer assists you with the procedure to get to the hearing in a timely fashion. The procedure requires paperwork and many documents. Also, the procedure requires some details along the way a lawyer can assist you with. Furthermore, a lawyer with experience in this area of law knows what needs to be done to adequately present your case before an ALJ (Administrative Law Judge). A lawyer with experience makes sure that you have your moment in court. These hearing can often be brief, therefore you should present your case as thoroughly and succinctly as possible. You don’t have to do this alone.
