Failing to Stay in Touch With Your Lawyer
If you hire a lawyer to represent you in your social security disability or SSI case, you must stay in touch with her. This does not mean that you must call her every time you see a doctor or your s are changed. But call her office when you get a new doctor, are admitted to a hospital, or you move or get a new phone number. It is important that your lawyer is able to find you at all times. Your lawyer will keep SSA updated with your most recent address; that way you won’t miss any notices from SSA. If you use a cell phone, be sure you keep enough minutes on it so that your lawyer can call you.
