Chicago Social Security Disability Post Hearing Process Lawyer

Illinois Attorney for the Social Security Disability Post Hearing Process and Collecting Payment

Have you won your Social Security disability benefits case? Congratulations! If you find yourself in the situation where you have been approved for Social Security disability benefits, then you are in a group of few disability claimants who were able to successfully navigate through the murky waters of the Social Security system.

Unfortunately, after fighting to obtain disability benefits for years you would think that the process would finally be over—that is often not the case. Getting paid has become an entire process in and of itself. If you find that your benefits were approved and it has been several months and you have not yet been paid, it is extremely important that you take immediate action.

Immediate action can include setting up an appointment with a Social Security District Office supervisor. If you are able to get in contact with a nice and helpful supervisor, he or she can typically contact a payment center directly to begin the process of issuing your payment. A supervisor has the ability to contact the payment center directly, thus immediately addressing the problem.

You can also try writing a letter to a payment center. You or your Social Security disability lawyer can write a letter to the payment center asking for the status of your claim, typically 45 days from the favorable decision. If you still have not heard anything back from Social Security 45 days after you or your disability attorney sent the fax letter to the payment center, try sending another letter via fax. Make sure to keep copies of anything you send to Social security because they tend to lose or misplace documents all the time.

Another option is to contact your local congressman. A congressional office typically has a department or specific person designated to handle Social Security issues. Since the Social Security Administration makes so many errors your congressman’s office most likely has dealt with many issues similar to yours. A congressional inquiry can speed up the Social Security disability benefits payment process.

If you have won your Social Security disability benefits claim and have not yet received your payment, contact our office for help in expediting the process.
