When one of my clients is awarded disability benefits, I like to write a short letter to the local Social Security field office, asking them to quickly process the disability claim. I want the local office to send the claim promptly to the Social Security Payment Center for payment.
When the person awarded Social Security disability benefits is a parent of a minor child (or children), that minor child is entitled to auxiliary benefits. I always provide the child’s name, date of birth, and Social Security number in my letter, to assist the processing of the auxiliary benefits claim.
Represesentation does not end once your client is awarded disability benefits. Making sure that they are paid correctly, and as promptly as possible, is part of the job.
