YOUR RIGHT TO PAYMENT WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME
We are required by a District Court order in Holman et al. v. Bowen, (Civ. No. 78-0494,
M.D. PA. May 1, 1987), to notify you of your right to have your disability payments
sent to you by us within a reasonable time after a favorable determination of your
eligibility for benefits.
If you would like to know whether a favorable determination of your claim has been
made, you may contact any Social Security office and request this information. If
your claim was approved, the Social Security office will tell you when it was approved
and when you can expect to receive payment.
If, at any time, you feel that your payments are being unreasonably delayed, you may
seek relief from a United States District Court.
You may wish to contact an attorney regarding your rights. If you do not have an attorney,
free legal services may be available if you qualify for them due to financial need.
For further information about where to apply for free legal help, you may call the
