If Social Security tries to cut off my disability benefits, what can I do?

Social Security Disability Benefits Cut Off?  What should you do?

You should contact a lawyer immediately. Social Security disability cessation cases which is where they’re trying to cut you off can be appealed immediately. You also have the opportunity to keep your benefits during the period for which you are appealing the government’s decision to cease your benefits.  Within 10 days, you need to request that your benefits continue. Then, you will continue receiving benefits during the appeal.

After filing the appeal, a reconsideration of your case will take place. During this stage, you may be asked to attend a consultative examination to assess your current medical condition. If the reconsideration is unsuccessful, you can request a hearing before an administrative law judge. Presenting a strong case with medical evidence, witness testimonies, and any relevant documentation is crucial during the hearing.

If the administrative law judge’s decision is unfavorable, you can further appeal to the Appeals Council and, if necessary, pursue legal action in federal court.

It’s important to note that the appeals process can be time-consuming, so maintaining open communication with your attorney and Social Security, staying organized with documentation can significantly improve your chances of retaining disability benefits.

We focus our practice on handling Social Security Disability (SSD), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Veterans’ disability claims for individuals and families in the Northeast Ohio region.

We are passionate about our work, and our firm has helped thousands upon thousands of people since it first opened.

Smith & Godios Fee Structure for Disability Benefits Cut Off

We understand that money can be an issue for many of our clients. That’s why you don’t risk losing anything by choosing our firm. If our lawyers don’t get you disability benefits, you don’t pay attorney fees. As long as you are not currently receiving benefits, you never have to pay us from your future benefits.

Here’s how it works:

  • We only receive 25 percent of “back” benefits.
    When you start receiving benefits, the government will owe you a lump sum of “back” benefits. This pays you back for the time you were eligible for benefits but didn’t receive them. We charge 25 percent of that sum as our attorney fee.
