Serving clients throughout Northern Ohio with Social Security Disability Law

How COVID-19 is Affecting SSA/Disability Claim Processing

You are likely already feeling a bit weary of being bombarded with news, medical recommendations, conspiracy theories related to a virus that came into existence only very recently and added words to our vocabulary (social distancing).

Rather than give you information that will be outdated within hours, let me direct you to Social Security’s website created on March 16, 2020 for official communication for up-to-date information.  It is  Social Security is scaling back some services deemed non-essential, and we can be sure that even more patience that usual is going to be asked of us.

At Roose & Ressler, we are continuing to provide quality service to our existing clients and meeting with people to discuss their claims but doing so by primarily by telephone and email.  And we are preparing to do our work from our homes, if necessary.  If you are our client and have an upcoming hearing, we will be in contact with you with any changes related to your hearing.

Follow the recommended precautions to slow the spread of this virus and stay well!
