We filed a Social Security Disability (“SSD”) for a claimant from Brooklyn with depression over 5.5 years ago. After administrative denials, we appealed in federal court, and succeeded in obtaining a reversal. On remand, the administrative law judge (“ALJ”) asked a medical expert (“ME”) and a vocational expert (“VE”) to testify.
At the hearing, after the ME testified that the claimant met a listing, the ALJ ended the hearing without any testimony from the VE, which means SSD benefits will be approved. Today we received the Fully Favorable Decision; however, the notice of award (“NOA”) that details the benefits that are due and the lump sum past due benefits can take many months to get, especially when the claim involves a federal court remand.
Our claimant is ecstatic that he was approved, and grateful that we fought so hard for him. If you are thinking about applying for disability, please call my office for a free phone consultation. Our offices are conveniently located on Long Island in Nassau and Suffolk counties.Previous Next
