Today is March 16, 2021 and it has been exactly one year since my last in-person disability hearing. Three Hundred and Sixty-Five days of uncertainty, changes, delays, and weirdness.

Social Security disability hearings continue to be done by telephone at this point; however, the use of video is on the horizon ( see this link: bit.ly/3jSncNS). While I applaud SSA's intent to provide the best possible service while not putting the brakes on the hearing process, I think that they are overstating the possibilities with the video hearings.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic no in-person hearings are being offered at the moment. As of this writing, we know that this will be true through at least October 2020, but expect that it may be even longer than that before we are allowed back in the Social Security buildings for face-to-face hearings. In the meantime, Social Security hearings are…Read More

I've had a lot of calls this week regarding the COVID19 crisis. The bottom line is that Social Security is still working. If you are currently receiving benefits your benefits will not stop. Social Security is working as hard as they can under the circumstances to get your claim for disability processed and Disability Determinations Services (DDS) in North Carolina…Read More

“How are you doing?” is a loaded question for my disabled clients. I've learned to ask, "How are you doing today?" instead. This week in a disability hearing, when the judge asked my client how he was doing, my thoughtful client struggled with how to answer. After thinking for a moment he responded, “My spirit is well.” I loved that…Read More
