Changes to Social Security Filing Rules

December 15th, 2011

The Social Security Administration recently enacted a rule preventing individuals with denied claims from filing a new claim while the first claim is still on appeal.  This new rule could be harmful to individuals whose appeals have taken months or years to resolve while they wait with no benefits.  Our national organization, NOSSCR, is busy meeting with the SSA to explain the potentially harmful effects of this new ruling and is encouraging the Administration to re-think its position.  We will keep our clients updated on this new development.  If you have questions regarding your Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDIB) claim or your Supplement Security Income (SSI) claim, contact our office.
