Will Contacting My Senator Speed Up My Social Security Disability Claim?

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Jan 17, 2018 | 0 Comments

Social Security disability claimants are right to be frustrated by the absurd delays in getting their cases resolved. We learned

Dear Sir, Please Help

recently that there are now more than1,000,000 people waiting to see judges to learn if they will get disability benefits.  With numbers like these, it makes sense that people would reach out to their elective representatives for assistance.

So, will your Senator speed up your claim?

No. Nothing will.

The Paper Chase

If you contact your Senator about your Social Security disability claim, he or she will write to Social Security to inquire about you.  In response, Social Security will send a form letter back to your Senator saying "we are working on it." Your Social Security disability file will now have two more pieces of paper in it.  That will be the sum of what happens. Your case will not get any more attention.

What Did I Ever Do To You?

Your case will not be processed faster.  Nothing is going to change.

Too Many Trees?

If you think there are too many trees in the world and you would like to see some cut down to make paper to print pointless letters on, go ahead and contact your Senator.  Otherwise, try to be patient while you wait for your hearing.  I know that is much easier said than done, but looking for relief where none may found will only add to your frustration.

Have you written to your Senator about your Social Security disability claim? If so, what happened? Let me know. 

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
