I am on SSI. I had received monies from a class action back in 2008 which were properly deposited (trust). Recently, I've received monies from a second class action which were also deposited into that same trust. However, I represented myself to SSA and now I'm in a confusing situation regarding the 2nd settlement. I have 60 days to appeal to SSA.
A disability lawyer set up the 1st trust but no longer retain her services. My question is who can represent me at the SSA office - a disability or a social security lawyer?
Dealing with government hassle is stressful and confusing. Does SSA offer free lawyers, advocates or representatives?
