Q: Disabled son was on SSA. Without notification, they stopped his checks. He has HSP. No cure yet, can someone help him?
He has been disabled since birth, he was on SSI, then he got on SSA, without any letter or any communication , they just stopped his checks, he had no option to appeal this decision. On the SSA site, it said he was no longer disabled. What can he do about this? He lives in Weatherford, Tx
A: He needs to contact his local Social Security office and get them to mail him a copy of the decision. It's possible that they had an old address for him and he did not get his notice. He may also have missed the mail for the case review. He can also call the national toll free number at 800-772-1213 and get more information. They may allow him to file an appeal late. If not, he will need to file a new application. Once he gets a copy of the notice I suggest that he contact a local attorney who does a lot of social security work to see if he can get some assistance in trying to file a late appeal.
