CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: COVID-19 and Its Effect on Social Security Disability Cases

Lebau & Neuworth partner attorney Richard Neuworth delivered a presentation on COVID-19 and Social Security disability cases to the National Organization of Social Security Claimants Representatives on October 30, 2020, at its national convention.

The presentation discussed how COVID-19 has actually opened new ways for claimants to obtain disability benefits from the Social Security Administration. In fact, there are several different scenarios to consider in disability cases, including:

  • What are long term effects of contracting COVID-19, including complications?
  • What physical conditions make individuals at high or very high risk to work outside of the home?
  • Does the claimant have an underlying severe medical impairment that could place the claimant at high or very high risk if they tried to work without a vaccine?

Other important topics are how to cross examine vocational and other medical experts during the course of Administrative Law Judge hearings.
