A retired Social Security judge in the state of West Virginia collaborated
with a lawyer to improperly award hundreds of applicants undeserved disability
benefits. According to reports, the judge was accepting bribes to grant
SSDI claims despite the fact that the claimants didn't technically
qualify. The men involved in the scheme are now being charged for taking
advantage of the federal program for their own personal benefit.
Illegal SSDI schemes like this one can often lead to serious mishandlings.
The recipients of SSDI will often have their benefits withheld once the
scheme is discovered, and they may never qualify for SSDI benefits again.
In this case, the judge that was approving claims knew that medical evidence
used for the applications was false, but failed to report the lying claimants.
If you have applied for SSDI and been disapproved, don't try using
schemes of this nature to get the finances that you need. Instead, hire
SSDI attorney that can help you to work through your case. At the Zendeh Del Law Firm, PLLC,
there are SSDI attorneys who can help to work with you and will represent
you if you want to appeal a negative SSDI decision.
Nearly 11 million disabled workers, spouses, and children are permitted
to receive SSDI benefits. This is a 45% increase in the past decade. In
order to qualify, individuals must prove that they have disabilities that
prevent them from working and that these disabilities are expected to
last at least a year or will eventually result in death. You will need
to propose proven medical evidence in order to show that you are eligible
for your benefits. It is worth it to invest in a lawyer who can advocate
for you because you may be able to receive years of SSDI as a result.
