"Firing" Your Social Security Disability Representative Is Your Right - But Is It Wise?

Note: This article/video is for general information only and is not legal advice to any particular reader or individual. For legal advice, you must specifically retain a lawyer who evaluates your specific situation.

Sometimes a claimant is really disappointed in her choice of appointed representative before the SSA, in her disability case. She wants to change up. There could be great reason, or not necessarily. This short video explains a claimant's unilateral right to terminate the appointment, but more importantly, explains some of the repercussions and how jumping ship may not be the best choice - particularly if a claimant is hoping to get a replacement attorney.

For consideration for Attorney SSD/SSI representation in an upcoming or pending SSDI/SSI disability claim, please fill out our free Attorney Evaluation form. We do NOT charge a retainer to serve you. If, on the other hand, you only seek an attorney level consultation/analysis of a particular situation, whether you are a company or an individual, or to discuss your own situation without representation, to learn information beyond that information you may obtain for free from the SSA itself, and you do not otherwise have a lawyer representing your before the SSA, you may order a scheduled consultation at affordable attorney rates.
