Keep a record of your telephone call and be sure to note the date of your call, the time of her call, who you spoke to and what they told you. Better yet, send a letter certified mail, asking that the appointment be rescheduled. You’ll have proof of your contact.

If the appointment has not been rescheduled within 10 days of your call, follow-up once again and document or communications with the Social Security administration.

There is a reason that the Social Security administration has scheduled this examination and it probably is that there is not enough proof in your file to establish that you are entitled to Social Security disability benefits.

John R. Laird applied for and received disability benefits in 1989, court documents show. During the time that Laird was telling the Social Security Administration that he was unable to lift or use his arms and had trouble getting around, he got a full-time job as a mechanic, pleaded guilty to methamphetamine-related charges in St. Clair County in 2001, violated his probation and was sent to prison, court documents show. He was supposed to notify officials about all those milestones, prosecutors said.

Laird pleaded guilty to concealment of material information from the Social Security Administration today and agreed to pay restitution. The U.S. attorney’s office said Laird would owe more than $120,000.

John Laird costs everyone in the Social Security Disability system!! St. Petersburg Social Security Disability attorneys at Cavey and Barrett don’t tolerate clients who we think are trying to game the Social Security system.

Listing of Impairments – Social Security Benefits and Chronic Infections of the Lung | Hillborough County Social Security Disability Attorney

Mycobacterial, mycotic, and chronic persistent infections of the lung are listed conditions under section 3.08. You can get Social Security Disability benefits for chronic lung infections. You can look at the listing in detail here.

The Social Security Administration requires that these disorders be evaluated on the basis of resulting limitations in pulmonary function. Evidence of chronic infection with positive culture, drug resistance, enlarging parenchymal lesions or cavitation, are not, by themselves, a basis for determining that you have a disabling impairment expected to last 12 months.

If, however, you do have the pulmonary infection that persists almost 12 months, the clinical findings, complications, treatment considerations and prognosis will be carefully assessed by the Social Security Administration to determine whether, despite your pulmonary function, you have an impairment that is expected to last at least 12 consecutive months which prevents gainful activity.

This will be evaluated under the criteria found in 3.02 Chronic Pulmonary Insufficiency which you can will review at the posting on that topic.
