A Michigan Social Security lawyer can be a great asset to you, even after you have been granted and are receiving disability benefits. Periodically SSA will review all recipients of Social Security Disability. While receiving a notice of review is not a matter to panic over, you do need to take it seriously. In fact, there are proactive measures you can take to help ensure your continued coverage.
Generally speaking, cases are reviewed every three years. In some instances, though, cases are reviewed more often. Your Notice of Award may specify a time or frequency of review. When you receive a notice that your case will be reviewed you will need to complete a form which asks:
You will receive a notice following the review which indicates an updated status of your benefits. If you are found to no longer be eligible for disability, your Michigan Social Security lawyer can help you appeal. However, you need to act quickly. If you appeal within ten days of the notice date your benefits will continue during the appeals process.
It is always better to be proactive. As the adage says, “A stitch in time saves nine.” Your best defense is to continue seeking medical treatment. Often disability recipients become frustrated when they see no hope for any more improvement, and stop going to the doctor. Your Michigan Social Security lawyer will tell you this is a big mistake. When the inevitable review comes up, you will then have no objective, expert evidence of your continued disability.
Even after you are granted SSD it is a good idea to have a Michigan Social Security lawyer in your corner. If you have become disabled and are no longer able to work, call J.B. Bieske and Jennifer Alfonsi, Attorneys at Law, at (800) 331-3530.
