COVID-19 Update on Office Closures and Filing for Disability

During this period of uncertainty, the lawyers and staff at Cuddigan Law remain available to help you. We want you to know that even with the local social security office being closed — making the filing process a little more difficult — we are on top of how those closings are impacting our clients' cases and are here to help you every step of the way. Our team is working remotely, and we are ready to help you with your legal matters — on the phone, through email, or through the use of other technology when necessary, including through the use of videoconferencing as accessibility allows. At this time, our office is closed to the public to further prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) are continuing to process disability applications and appeals. Their employees will work remotely but their offices will remain closed to the public. SSA judges will conduct hearings by telephone and not in person. We are committed to moving your case along and recommend that you handle your hearing by telephone to avoid further delay. SSA benefits provided to you or family members will continue to be delivered. VA judges will not conduct hearings in person but virtual hearings are an option. VA judges will continue to review written arguments in cases where no hearings were requested. VA benefits and services provided to Veterans, families, and survivors will continue to be delivered.

If you or a loved one need assistance filing for disability and are struggling to do so with the local social security office being closed, our team is here to help you every step of the way. Fill out the contact form below or call (402) 933-5405 to speak with a member of our team today.
