Hello and and thank you for your question. For over 35 years, I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.
Doo you have an attorney now? If not, have you ever had an attorney representing you?
I tried by calling dozens of attorneys and they wouldn't stay on the phone long enough to hear about my case, except recently, for the first time, last week, an attorney told me that no one will take my case because it's complete with a favorable decision, even though it's contradictory. They said it's a collection issue even though the fully favorable doesn't, in writing, admit to disability. Strange, that was the only call I made explaining that And I got that answer. He made it sound like attorneys don't help with collection, which I'd thought was part and parcel of the whole thing. In fact, when I also said they now, 3 years later, without explanation, denied my award without stating exactly what they were denying and that I also called and no one has any record of who or what denied me or even why or what for. The one office that found a decision said it just said denied, he thinks, though it looks like he could have tried to spell something and either didn't finish or he may have tried to write something else. Other offices don't have any record whatsoever about the case at all. It appears like the Administration's personnel don't want to get involved. It's almost like saying, you know what I mean, when they haven't nor do they wish to tell you anything. The fewer words to describe nothing the better. Kind of like mumbling, on purpose as you slowly turn your head and walk away so that the other person can't ask you to explain before they get out of ear-shout. Nobody wants to touch this, you know, surely you know what I mean, especially if you are a person who doesn't want to tell you what he means, so he can't be blamed for anything by the party that wrote the order. At least people tell animals to shooo!!!! I guess I don't rate even that............
The attorney is correct as SS attorneys get paid to win the case. And this is now a collection matter. Therefore, it is illegal for an attorney to take a fee from you. and the government does not pay attorneys for any work they do for collection cases.
Regardless, you need to contact your Congressman's office and they WILL assign someone who has the direct phone numbers to call and make things happen that you cannot do yourself. that is right so please take my advice as I have given the same advice to many of my clients whom I could not help directly and they were all very pleased with the results. Note, the SSA works for Congress who sets their budget. So please follow through as soon as you can.
Please be so kind as to rate my answer ok or better so that I can get paid for assisting you. I wish you well.
I will pay you as soon as I am able to find out what you say is correct. Thank you for the info, so far, now it just has to work or otherwise...... it's worthless. In fact, going to my congressman, I know that and have used that twice before, once to have her get the IRS off my neck. Even though I know that I was hoping for something else. If I get it, even if there's more work, I'll pay you. I'll trust you, now you have to trust me. This is not instantanious, though I'd wish it were, if it were instantaneous, I'd pay to ten fold, but I have to try door #3 first. If this upsets you, then right now I'm finding it very difficult to appease you while being fair, especially with myself. I guess if this was just a charge for whatever you tell me, it should have been described as such, from the beginning. Now it's either nothing at all or later. I would think you'd choose later.
Thanks again, Jim
