Social Security

My office is proud to work with the Social Security Administration (SSA) to ensure appropriate benefits and assistance for qualifying Connecticut residents.  If you’ve had your benefits denied, withheld or feel as though an error has occurred relating to your SSA benefits, my office will gladly work with the SSA to try and resolve the issue. The Social Security Administration oversees multiple programs including retirement benefits, Social Security Disability benefits, Social Security Supplemental Income benefits, and Survivors benefits.

Please understand that for Social Security Disability (SSD) claims my office cannot expedite your hearing date or influence the determination made by your hearing officer or the Administrative Law Judge. However, we are happy to provide you with a status update regarding any pending SSD claims you may have.
