Question: Can you help me with a non-disability Social Security problem?

Answer: Sure, we would be happy to take a look at your non-disability Social Security problem, the type of case that usually involves Social Security retirement and survivor benefits.

Here are some types of non-disability Social Security cases that we get contacted about:

  • Overpayments. We may be able to help you get them waived. We do have to charge upfront on these cases since there are no back benefits involved.
  • Federal pension offsets. We probably can’t help you. You need to talk with your Congressperson.
  • Paternity cases. Need to prove that a man who has died was the father of your child? We may be able to help.
  • You say you’re disabled but Social Security says you’re still working. We may be able to help.
  • Social Security won’t pay you because they say you’re younger than you know yourself to be. We may be able to help get the foreign records (and this is normally a problem only for people born outside the U.S.
  • Your husband or wife disappeared and Social Security won’t accept that they’re dead. We may be able to help.
  • Social Security won’t accept that you had a common law marriage to a person who is now deceased. We may be able to help
  • Your husband or wife died less than 9 months after you got married and Social Security won’t accept that the death was unexpected. We may be able to help
