Suspended Social Security Benefits

Getting Warrants Cancelled

Restoration of Social Security Benefits

Have your Social Security Benefits been stopped or suspended because you have an outstanding warrant in a Massachusetts Court?

Under Federal Law the U.S. Social Security Administration is required to suspend payment of your social security benefits if you have an outstanding warrant in a felony case anywhere in the USA. As the result of cooperation between the states and the Federal Government, all the states now notify the U.S. Social Security Administration of all persons who have outstanding warrants in felony cases. Often, these cases are very old and can be resolved quickly without you having to return to Massachusetts.

Attorney Lewin has a remarkable record of clearing these old warrants without the client having to come to Massachusetts.

Some examples of cases from the last few months where Attorney Lewin has been successful in getting benefits restored without the client having to come to Massachusetts are as follows:

A Florida Resident, age 67, had his social security retirement benefits stopped when the Social Security Administration learned that he had warrants outstanding in four Massachusetts Courts (Stoughton District Court, Malden District Court, Peabody District Court, and Chelsea District Court) The warrants dated back to the early 1980s. It took two trips to Stoughton District Court and one trip to each of the other three courts and all the warrants were cleared and all the cases were favorably closed. 31 days after being retained the client’s benefits were reinstated.

An Arizona Resident, age 55, had his social security disability benefits stopped when the Social Security Administration learned that he had outstanding warrants in two Felony cases in Lowell District Court. Attorney Lewin got the warrants cancelled in both cases and 11 days after being retained the client’s benefits were restored.

These cases typically require attention to detail, getting all the relevant court papers, negotiating with the District Attorney, and ultimately convincing the judge that it makes no sense to require the person in default to return to Massachusetts. Attorney Lewin brings his 37 years in the practice of law to this problem and has developed the techniques for getting these warrant cases resolved favorably and promptly.
