Attorney And Disabiltiy Reviews
Posted 17 October 2011 - 08:43 PM
Well when I was turned down I went back to my oringinal attorney thinking that was the logical thing to do since he still had all my file information. I went right down to the social security office as he told me and filed the appeal and also filed to continue my benefits. My attorney told me the process would take about 14 months to get straightend out. Well at the beginning of October I was informed through Humana that my insurance was being cancelled because I no longer would have medicare parts a & b. So I called Social Security and they told me my local office did not put my paper work through. I also called my attorney and my case worker and was told everything would be fixed by the following Tuesday. i waited till Wednesday Oct. 12 to call my insurance to give plenty of time to make sure everything was fixed and my medicare still wasn't fixed. When I called social security they told me that the local office had 30 days to from the date I called (oct 4th) to fix the problem but my payments would continue. It was only the medicare that was an issue. They aslo told me not to call the local office or go down there. Well I certainly did call my case worker and my attorney. My case worker did not call me back and my attorney said he really didn't deal with medicare problems. I told him this was part of the appeals process he should be handling it but he seemed to disagree. So the next day I went down to the local social security office. One of the first things they asked me was "who was my attoney and why was he not handleing this?" They told me they were working on it and hoped to get it fixed before the end of the month. They also told me that just to get a hearing is taking up to a year in some cases. So who do I believe? My attorney said 6 months on the hearing and is there anything I can do to make sure I don't lose my medicare? I do have the original paper work I filled out date August 23, 2011. And what do I do about my attorney telling me conflicting information?
If anyone has any answers or suggestions I'd like to hear from anyone. I'm new to this site and I feel like I don't have a voice.
Music is my therapy!
