If you received a letter from the SSA about extending deadlines during COVID-19, you may have some concerns. Do not worry. During this pandemic, the SSA is extending deadlines for requests for information, evidence, or call-in letters whenever possible. The SSA will not take an adverse action because you did not respond to their request or provide evidence. They cannot make a decision in your case, however, until they have all the evidence they need in your file.

The SSA is also extending the time limits to appeal decisions. If the SSA needs a Consultative Examination to obtain additional evidence, they will place your claim on hold until they are able to safely schedule appointments.  Do not let this worry you. You will still have a visit with their doctor. This is a temporary measure. CDL believes this will only delay a decision in your claim by a matter of weeks.


Additionally, the SSA has announced heat they are temporarily suspending work on continuing disability reviews and appeals for continuing disability reviews.  Therefore, if you are undergoing a continuing disability review, you can also expect a delay in your case.

Meanwhile, despite these delays, it is important to be patient. The SSA remains open and has not shut down, unlike other governmental agencies or private businesses.  They continue to move forward, making decisions on cases, and holding hearings (although not in-person).  We believe the SSA has is responsibly approaching this pandemic. They are concerned about your case. Likewise, we are also concerned and continue to monitor the SSA’s actions. We also remain open, working on your case.


If you are worried about your case, contact Cannon Disability Law. We are working on your case. Also, we are developing the medical evidence and preparing clients for their upcoming hearings.

If you have medical evidence to submit, submit it to us through email. You can send evidence through our contact page. Also, you can contact our office to help you submit evidence. As always, you can apply for benefits online at the Social Security website.

We are here for you. If you need to file an application or appeal an unfavorable determination, contact us. You can call us directly. Or, you can contact us on this website under our contact page.

In order to hire Cannon Disability, all you need to do is call or contact us. We offer a free consultation over the phone. And, it doesn’t cost anything to call us.

Better yet, it also doesn’t cost you any upfront money to hire us. Why? Because you only pay us an attorney fee if we win your case. This is a contingency fee. It means if we win your SSD case, you pay the attorney fee out of your back benefits. If you do not win, there is no attorney fee to pay.

The attorney fee has a cap or a limit. The SSA sets the limit of the attorney fee at 25% of the back benefit or the attorney fee cap, whatever is less.

If there are costs in your case, then you pay those. But typically those costs are less than $100. Once we win your case, the attorney fee comes from your back benefit.

But, to hire most lawyers, you have to pay money upfront. We don’t work like that. You don’t have a job. So, the only way to pay us, is for us to win your case. That is our goal. Call today. See what we can do for you.

Additionally, we represent clients in many states. For example, we have clients in Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Colorado and California. Find out more about Nevada disability benefits here.
