    "I had tried to get on disability, unsuccessfully, for two years before I spoke with Ms. Flynn. My Adjudicator's message center was full. That was when I received a letter informing me my case was closed. So, l called a friend, who had heard of Kathleen Flynn, and who gave me her number. I called, reapplied, and with Kathleen Flynn's help and effort, six months later I was awarded my case. Thank you again, Kathleen. Your help changed my ability to live with my disabilities."

      The Social Security Administration (SSA) eliminated Medical Listing 9.08. For complications from diabetes, this listing previously resulted in a finding of disability at step three of the sequential evaluation process for social security disability claims. https://www.ssa.gov/disability/professionals/bluebook/9.00-Endocrine-Adult.htm In fact, effective June 7, 2015, there are no specific endocrine disorder listings anymore for adults. One exception is […]

    • SOCIAL SECURITY’s 80th ANNIVERSARY August 5, 2015
      Marking a Social Security Milestone August 14, 2015 is the 80th anniversary of Social Security. Few Americans working today can remember a time when Social Security wasn’t part of the social fabric of America.
