COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, has affected many aspects of normal life in a short amount of time. With changes occurring at a rapid pace, we hope to alleviate some of your worries by providing resources and information about how Coronavirus is affecting local Social Security Administration (SSA) offices and our operations at the Khaki Law Firm. If you have questions about these resources, one of our knowledgeable legal advocates can assist you.

Moving Your Disability Claim Forward

While many SSA offices in Georgia are closed to the public, there are still many resources available to those who wish to apply for Social Security disability benefits or move their case forward.

Filing Applications or Requests through an SSA Office

The process of applying for disability benefits maybe easiest to complete online or over the phone. The Khaki Law Firm will help clients get this setup, and we handle all things related to filing an appeal. Submitting applications or requests in this way can be very useful for individuals going through the first steps of obtaining Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), as this may reduce delay in the benefits process.

Rescheduling a Cancelled or Delayed Hearing

While many disability hearings are being cancelled by the SSA and Administrative Law Judges, you still may have options. Scheduling a hearing online or over the phone may be a viable solution for you. You may also discuss rescheduling your hearing date with one of our team members.

Discussing Your Case with a Hearing Claims Advocate

At the Khaki Law Firm, our clients come first. Our hearing claims advocates are available for virtual appointments to help you with your specific circumstances. We are taking necessary and proactive measures to ensure the health and well-being of our employees and clients by arranging virtual meetings whenever possible.

Best Preventive Measures for COVID-19

During the Coronavirus pandemic, following guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and other governmental organizations can help stop the spread of COVID-19. Some recommended practices include:

  • Frequently washing your hands;
  • Avoiding touching your face when possible;
  • Practice social distancing;
  • Avoiding unnecessary travel;
  • Disinfecting frequently used surfaces; and
  • Follow the state or city shelter in place orders.

Meeting with Legal Counsel

To proactively fight the spread of COVID-19, the experienced legal professionals at Khaki Law Firm will be working remotely until further notice. However, you can still contact our hearing claims advocates and employees for a virtual appointment over the phone or online. We have multiple technological resources available to ensure that you still receive quality assistance without compromising safety. These resources include:

  • Scheduling an over-the-phone or video conference meeting;
  • Ensuring frequent communication with clients; and
  • Using high-quality, secure, and up-to-date software to manage operations.
