Customer Question
I m trying to...

I m trying to find an attorney that can assist me disputing a claim by the Social Security Administration that they over paid me retirement benefits due to wages. The wages were actual for unused vacation and sick leave. All but a week of which was earned prior to 01/01/2016. I retired 05/01/16. I showed them the check stubs which indicated it was for leave balances to no avail. However, when I look for attorneys, I cannot determine which area of practice is pertinent since it is not concerning eligibility

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Indiana

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I only have the letter from Social Security stating I owe them just under $6000.00. When I went to the office to get clarification and to find out about appeal rights they entered it as an inability to pay. I subsequently received a letter that repayment is on hold while they review my ability to repay.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I am retired fro the State of Indiana and I have attempted to contact State Personnel to see if they could provide an explanation of the payment for excessive leave and I have not been able to get a response

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

I am an RN working at a VA. I suffer from depression and have had to take sick leave for the issue. I have felt ostracized by my manager and have recently been asked to sign a document with dates that he has spoken with me about his concerns about my use of sick leave. I have reported on multiple occasions that the continued additions to my workload are causing extraordinary stress and that the workload is unmanageable. I am suffering from burnout and feel like a failure when I cannot meet unreasonable workload demands. I am struggling with an exacebation of depression and anxiety and took 3 days off last week with a not from my provider. I also turned in FMLA documents from my provider when I came back this week. I was told to meet with my manager on Wednesday and he made me sign a document that states he has talked to my on 3 occasions about using sick leave too much. The next action taken will be disciplinary. I feel humiliated and it seems like depression is being treated differently than say a broken leg or any other medical disability. Do I have any protection from being talked to or disciplined for using sick leave? … read more
