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 information related to this virus that came into existence only very recently and has added new phrases to our vocabulary (“social distancing” and “flattening the curve”).

Social Security’s procedures and policy in response to COVID-19 is a work in progress as they respond to developments related to this virus.  Please go to Social Security’s website created on March 16, 2020, for official and up-to-date information at www.ssa.gov/coronavirus.   Social Security is scaling back some services deemed non-essential, and we can be sure that even more patience than usual is going to be asked of us.

If you are our client and have an upcoming hearing, we will be in contact with you with any changes related to your hearing.

At Roose & Ressler, we are continuing to provide quality service to our existing clients and meeting with people (by telephone and email) to discuss how we can help with their claims.   Most of us at Roose & Ressler are working from home to minimize social contact, as recommended by our government and health officials.

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