- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
The State agency continues to send claimant’s letters stating that they “need” to, and “must,” be examined by Social Security doctors. They don’t. I have regularly posted about why the DDS letters are misleading and inaccurate.
Once again, I represent a claimant, this one an attorney from Hewlett with cardiovascular and mental impairments, to whom the State agency sent repeated letters insisting that he attend a consultative examination (“CE”). Because of COVID, he wanted his doctor to perform the CE, which is what the regulations actually require.
The claimant was awarded Social Security Disability (“SSD”) benefits without the need for a hearing. Obviously, it was not necessary that he attend a CE in order to be eligible to receive SSD benefits.
The analysts at the State agency like to harass and threaten people. If you don’t have a disability attorney representing you who is experienced with dealing with these analysts, you will have a very difficult time doing so on your own, not to mention the stress and heartache it will cause you. We have over 35 years of experience representing disabled workers. You can call our office for a free phone consultation. Our offices are conveniently located in both Nassau and Suffolk counties on Long Island.Previous Next
