Keep Your Disability Representative Updated

It is very important to always keep them updated on what is happening with your situation.

If you choose to use a disability attorney (or non-attorney representative) for your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) claim or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claim, it is very important to always keep them updated on what is happening with your situation.

If your address or phone number changes, it is important for your disability representative to know about it. Your disability representative will make sure that the Social Security Administration (SSA), Disability Determination Services (DDS) or the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review (ODAR) is also notified about your change in address or phone number.

If you miss an important notice, like a consultative exam, or a notice for your disability hearing, it can have devastating implications for your disability case.

Whenever you receive a letter, notice or phone call from the SSA, DDS, or ODAR, you need to let your disability representative know about it. Usually, notices that are sent to you are also sent to your representative; however, you sometimes might receive a notice that was not sent to your representative. So, just to be safe, always let your representative know when you are contacted regarding your disability case.

If anything changes regarding your disability, let your representative know. If your doctor gives you a new diagnosis or tells you that your disability is getting worse, your representative needs to know about it. This information could help win your disability claim.
