Our client’s monthly Social Security disability check was lower than she expected. She knew her check would be offset by her worker’s compensation settlement, but she expected more than $200 a month.
In May 2017, she contacted us for help. We calculated the amount we believed she was due and filed a Request for Reconsideration asking the Social Security Administration (SSA) to redo their math. Two months later, SSA determined that they owed her more than $15,000 in retroactive benefits. Her monthly check was also increased to $900 a month.
