The Stop the Wait Act has been introduced that would eliminate the five-month wait period for Social Security Disability benefits and the additional wait time for Medicare eligibility. Questions? Contact Burke Law, PLLC today!
I received many calls over the last few weeks regarding how the partial shutdown of the United States government affects Social Security benefits and claims. Fortunately, a full-year funding agreement for the Social Security Administration was reached prior to the shutdown and therefore the agency is not affected. Benefits are continuing to be paid and claims processed.
As 2019 greets us, I would like to thank you all for being a part of my journey thus far and making 2018 a successful year. I wish you and yours a happy and healthy 2019 and look forward to the opportunities that the New Year will bring! Sincerely, Katelyn M. Burke, Esq.
