Here we go again. We are representing a gentleman who has had his long term disability benefits (under ERISA) terminated after having been paid for sometime.
His insurance company insisted he apply for social security benefits and "recommended" their law firm.
We are trying to get that law firm's files.
Despite a signed authorization from the client and a promise last week that the file was in the mail, today we are told that the file has NOT been sent and that they aren't sure they "can" send the file.
As a client of a firm, you have an absolute right to your file but these social security law firms that are in the pockets of the disability insurance companies know who is paying their bills! Their obstructionism is unethical.
Always find your own social security attorney in your own home town.
