Americans unable to work due to mental or physical conditions believe that their problems are solved once their Social Security Disability benefits are approved. But the attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain that issues can arise with payments even after receiving a Social Security Disability Approval.

These problems were highlighted by the Dayton Daily News, which reported how a woman’s Social Security Disability payments had been halted due to a data entry error in the Social Security Administration’s computer system. The woman did not receive two payments and was later informed by staff at the local Social Security Disability office that her payments had been stopped because she was receiving benefits from the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation.

That was not the case, and the woman attempted three times to provide the Social Security Administration with the information they needed to correct the problem. Each time she was denied. She made to local officials who identified the problem as a computer error. A retroactive payment of $4,500 was then made to the woman.

The Social Security Disability Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin know how confusing the procedures and processes for receiving Social Security Disability benefits can be. This case is a prime example of why it is so important to have a qualified attorney be your side throughout and after the time a claim is made.
