Disability Attorneys of Michigan Attend Annual National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives Conference in Washington DC!

Attorneys Patrick Cahill and Adam Banton at the NOSSCR conference

This week attorneys Adam Banton and Patrick Cahill are attending a Social Security disability conference hosted by the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives.

The conference addresses a wide variety of topics, including discussions on recent regulatory changes concerning the Social Security Administration.

One such change mandates that for all Social Security disability hearings held on or after May 1, 2017, claimants or their representatives are under a duty to notify the Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) about all medical evidence that may be relevant to a decision on disability at least 5 business days prior to a hearing. If this rule is not complied with the ALJ may not take such evidence into account, which can impact the likelihood of a favorable decision.

Communication with your representative is crucial to complying with the new regulation. As a claimant, you can help to ensure that your medical record is complete for your hearing by notifying your representative immediately about any changes in your medical treatment, including new doctors, hospital visits, scheduled surgeries and major testing.

I have to let the world know that Disability Attorneys of Michigan got my disability approved in less than a year.  Every time I called the office, no matter who I spoke with, they treated me with complete respect.  Sometimes people with disabilities are confused and need things explained more than once.  No matter how many times I called, or no matter the question, they were awesome and if no one was available, they always called me back that same day!!  Patrick (my attorney) was awesome the day of the hearing.  He made me feel comfortable and answered all questions and was so positive. It’s very intimidating going in front of the judge asking for help and he made it possible so I could answer any question and understand it was okay to ask for help!!  I will refer everyone I know in need of a disability attorney to this office.  Thank you all so so much!!!
