Welcome to the frequently asked questions. Below are the most frequent and common questions we encounter
What do your charge?
On initail claims for SSI/SSDI benefits, we only get paid after we win your benefits. Social Security Administration mandates that we charge $6,000 or 25% or whichever is cheaper.
On CDR & Overpayment Cessation claims, we charge a flat fee at each level. You are responsible for payment upfront at each level of case
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes! This is done on a case by case basis.
How is disability defined by Social Security?
Social Security defines “disability” as the “inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment which can be expected to result in death or has lasted or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.”
How will SSA determine If I am disabled ?
You must have a severe medical impairment that prevents employment in any position on the national economy. With this statement in mind, there are other factors that will be taken into consideration by the Social Security Administration such as age, education, and past work experience. There are also a number of specific diagnoses that, with medical support, can be approved as a disability by the Social Security Administration
How does SSA determine If I am no longer disabled?
If your disability has improved to where your doctor says you are no longer disabled.
Why is SSA sending me a CDR & Overpayment or Cessation letter?
After you receive an award for SSI/SSDI benefits, SSA sends you a letter in the mail notifying you of your rights and responsibilities. This is so you are aware of what your reporting responsibilities are in receiving benefits. To maintain your benefits, you are required to notify SSA of any changes to your disability, living arrangements, marital status or income.
Once your benefits are rewarded your case will move into a new category called "Post Eligibility" status. The rules require SSA to evaluate your disability to ensure you are still disabled. Depending on your type of disability on average It can be between 2-3 years. Whereas others, It will never come up due to your exempt status.
Will I continue to qualify for benefits If I get better or start working?
Should your disability improves to where you are no longer disabled from the disabled condition which you are receiving benefits for, than SSA will discontinue your benefits as you will no longer be eligible. SSA has many programs that will allow you to continue to work while receiving benefits. There are quite a few work incentive programs that will allow you to work that SSA administers.
Are there any special programs that can help me prevent a Overpayment?
No! But we offer consulting services that can help you prevent this.
Will there be any back benefits after my claim is restored?
If your benefits have stopped and we get them restored, you will have back benefits from the time your benefits stopped to time they are restored.
What is my responsibility after receiving SSI/SSDI benefits?
To notify SSA of any changes in your disability, marital status, financial and living arrangements.
How long will It take to process a CDR, Overpayment Cessation claim?
It varies, on average our track record has been less than 2 months.
Do you represent claimant’s anywhere in the U.S.?
Do you offer other services?
Why is It difficult to find someone help me with my CDR, Overpayment & Cessation claim?
Unlike SSI/SSDI initial cases, SSA does not pay for Continuing Disability Review(CDR), Overpayment & Cessation cases you are responsible for full payment upfront at each level.
Do you offer payment plans?
If unable to pay full amount upfront, I will determine your financial situation. From there I will arrange a affordable monthly payment and balance will be due If back benefits are due. Even If claim is denied at either stage of the process, you will be responsible for payment no matter If case is won or lost.
