Social Security Disability: what happens when either a SSI or SSDI claim wasn't filed, and there's still time before the hearing?

Sometimes claimants have not filed both SSI and SSDI claims. This can be significant if the date last insured is before the date of disability. For example, let's say a SSDI claim is pending, but the date last insured is December 31, 2007. However, claimant doesn't have evidence proving disability before 2015, and there's no SSI claim pending. This means claimant would be out of luck if no SSI claim were pending. BUT, if claimant files a SSI claim before the hearing--even if it is on the eve of hearing--the SSI claim will be be "pending," and it can be considered at that point. This can make all the difference in the world between winning and losing certainly in this limited hypothetical and in other situations.

Lawyers shouldn't push people away #lawyermarketing #pencilsketch

Lawyers need to put themselves out there and meet other people. Most referral sources come from relationships. People have to know you to learn to respect you. That's how your name gets out, and then, if you do a good job, your name gets out there in a positive way.. So don't push people away.

#PoeticJustice for exterminating innocent animals

This guy broke down today, and I saw him while I waited in traffic. He's in the animal extermination business. Serves him right.

"The Hag Cries Alone" #micropoetry

No one is there
because she is a loner.
So she cries alone
but it isn't because she's
ugly on the outside. 
She's uglier in her heart.
That's why she's alone.
