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.

People unable to work due to disabling conditions often receive income supplied by a Social Security Disability Approval. However, faults within the system may create other problems for some of the most needy recipients.

The Social Security Disability Lawyers with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin explain that many Social Security disability recipients are severely handicapped, making it impossible to manage their own finances or keep track of their bank accounts on their own. This is why the Social Security Administration requires these individuals to have third-party help manage these aspects of day-to-day life.

When these helpers make a mistake though, the Social Security recipient may be the one who pays the ultimate price. A story from KATU News told of a man with no family and few friends suffered a traumatic brain injury that left him unable to manage his Social Security payments. He hired a third-party vendor to manage his money, but when he recently went to collect, he was instructed by a police officer and Social Security investigator that the business was shut down.

This left the man with no source of income, which created major problems for his housing and left him with no money for everyday living for some time.

The attorneys with Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin say the incident shows why it is so important to have a reputable attorney on your side throughout the Social Security Disability claims process and after.
