The Social Security Processing Centers calculate and pay a claimant’s disability benefits, once a favorable decision or determination has been made.
The SSA has posted on its site the telephone numbers for the various processing centers. These numbers are for attorney and non-attorney Representatives to call, rather than individual disability claimants.
Disability cases are broken up into two different groups for processing: claimants under age 54 and claimants age 54 and over. From there, you can find the phone number for the correct processing center with the claimant’s Social Security number.
The numbers are invaluable when tracking down a retroactive payment for a client or a Representative’s fee that is overdue.
