SSA Delays following Irma

For some of our clients, the storm affected their Social Security Disability hearing date.  After waiting over 2 years for a hearing to be scheduled, the Social Security office had no choice but to cancel and reschedule the hearings.  It is our understanding that Social Security is working to reschedule as soon as possible, but for at least one of our clients, the hearing will not proceed until January of 2018.  I am sure that there are many other claimants who are experiencing the same delays.  Our attempts to contact some of the local offices have resulted in the calls being forwarded to the National Calling Center.  We hope that hearings will continue to be scheduled and that claims will continue to be processed, but it appears that further delays are to be expected.

If you have any questions about your Social Security disability claim, please feel free to give us a call at 352-402-0444.  Or feel free to emails us at office.ocalaw.com
