APPALRED LEGAL AID HELPS FORMER CLIENTS OF ERIC C. CONN FACING LOSS OF DISABILITY BENEFITS

About 2000 more former clients of Attorney Eric C. Conn are facing a review of their eligibility for Social Security Disability and SSI benefits because of possible fraud.  Those people will be receiving notices informing them of the review and giving them 30 days to provide additional medical evidence supporting that they were disabled at the time they were awarded benefits. 

All affected persons should follow the directions on their notices and send in any appropriate medical records to the Social Security address given as soon as possible.  Most of those who receive notices will face a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge.  AppalReD Legal Aid strongly encourages all those who receive notices to get an attorney.

If you have received a notice and need help getting an attorney, you should contact AppalReD Legal Aid at 1-866-277-5733 or you can make an online application at www.ardfky.org.  AppalReD Legal Aid will be handling some of the cases and will be recruiting private attorneys to provide pro bono representation for others.  AppalReD Legal Aid will do its best to try to arrange representation for all those who apply, but AppalReD Legal Aid cannot guarantee that it will be able to help everyone. 

AppalReD Legal Aid provides free legal help in civil matters to people and groups who cannot afford an attorney.  AppalReD Legal Aid serves 37 counties in eastern and south central Kentucky.
