On Friday, October 29, 2021, the Social Security Administration (SSA) released a new Emergency Message to its employees, instructing them that when a person receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits files a request for reconsideration more than 15 days after the date on a Notice of Planned Action, but within the 65-day appeal period, the recipient must continue to receive their benefits while their appeal is pending, unless they waive this in writing. More information can be found here on the National Center on Law and Elder Rights Website. Nassau Suffolk Law Services handles SSI appeals under certain circumstances. Please give us a call to determine eligibility.
All of our offices are now open to the public and accepting walk-ins.
