Barry H. November 23, 2021
Constantly working and makes you feel like you're his only client. Will take my call 99% of the time So far, This is the best lawyer that I have ever had dealings with. He makes me feel like I am the most important person or case he has. He is very knowledgeable about disability law. He hasn't had to do very much yet because I am not at the appeals level. I believe I am going to get disability without having to go in front of a ALJ, so I hope that he has compassion and doesn't charge me for work that he doesn't have to do. I have filed 3 times and 2 of the times I had a different attorney. I was denied twice and had to appear in front of an Administrative Law Judge where I was ultimately denied. I applied a 3rd time and I believe I have already won my case and will not have to go in front of the ALJ. Mr. Perrigo will earn his money if he can establish my onset date to 2012 and I can receive the back pay that I deserve. I do not really know how that works but I am sure Mr. Perrigo knows since according to his resume he worked for Social Security and he is now an attorney fighting for people trying to get SSI or SSDi, while he is a Social Security expert teaching classes as a professor at Nashville School of Law. I would think he knows what he is doing and unlike a big firm, I can talk directly to my attorney if I need to, not a secretary or answering service. I believe he is the man for the job if you need an "EXPERT" in Social Security disability law.

Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered
Q. Husband died of last 17years not together I need death certificate to turn in BUT DONT HAVE HIS TOWN OR SS NUMBER ???
A: You should be able to call the Social Security Administration and they can search using an Alphadent query. They'll need his full name, DOB, place of birth, parents names, and mothers maiden name. Protection under the Privacy Act ends upon death, so they should be ok to release it. At least they were when I worked at SSA 10 years ago.
Q. Is it required for an individual to work the full five years just prior to retirement?
A: That is not true. What might be confusing her is the general rule that an individual seeking Social Security Disability benefits needs to have worked 5 of the 10 years before their disability onset date. There is no such rule for SS Retirement benefits. You just have to have worked the equivalent of 10 years over the course of your lifetime.
Q. My wife (52 yrs. old) receives SSDI and lied to me about the backpay she received. I pay 90% of our bills. Is this lega
A: Her SSDI payments are for her disability and she is under no legal obligation to tell you. Besides the moral and ethical issues, it would also pose a tax issue if she knowingly withheld that information from you while you filed an erroneous joint tax return.
