Case of the Week: 4/4/05

County: Barbour
Age: 64

Our client is a 64-year-old elderly lady who receives Social Security benefits. She contacted us because she was concerned about an organization being appointed as her representative payee. She contends she is able to manage her finances and if she needs someone to do it for her, she'd like to have someone else appointed. After reviewing her case, I was able to determine that she is still within her time to appeal. I explained when her deadline is to appeal the Social Security Administration's decision, outlined the appeal process for her, forwarded her a copy of a SSA-561 Request for Reconsideration form, and consulted with her regarding possible legal strategies in her appeal.
