LONG ISLAND INTERNATIONAL FILM EXPO - Max Hechtman, director of ”Abigail”

Hello, this is Regina Brandow. I hope everybody is staying healthy and safe.

Supporting young talent has always been important to me that's why I would like to tell you about the Long Island International Film Expo and the virtual screening of a film directed by a special young man. Max Hechtman has entered his short film "ABIGAIL" into the International Film Expo.

Inspired by a true story, ”Abigail” addresses the topics of grief, loss, the complicated topic of end-of-life decisions, and the unique challenges it poses to relationships and family dynamics.

Tuesday, October 6th. Ticket-holders will have access to the film (on computers, tablets, and phones) beginning at 7:30pm, and, then, have 24 hours to watch it as many times as they want. A ticket, which is $7, can be purchased by going to:

https://xerb.tv/channel/liife2020/virtual-events/643

Please join me and others on October 6th to support and enjoy the work of Max Hechtman.

[06/18/20]   Please note that SS will not consider Economic Impact Payments as income for SSI recipients, and the payments are excluded from resources for 12 months.

While the Treasury Department has sent approximately 160 million stimulus payments, according to a report from the House Ways and Means Committee, approximately 35 million people who are eligible still haven’t received checks. Eight million individuals who receive Social Security or Railroad retirement benefits and millions of SSI and VA recipients who do not file tax returns, as well as millions of others who do not receive any government benefits and are not required to file tax returns, have not received checks.

Advocates have an important role to play in connecting people with these stimulus payments.

Advocates can push states to do outreach to eligible individuals, including those receiving Medicaid, SNAP, and TANF benefits, letting them know about the non-filer portal and encouraging them to submit their information before the October 15, 2020 deadline.

Advocates can also push the Treasury to get the remaining payments out as quickly as possible. The agency has said it may take as long as the end of the year for all the payments to be made, which is too long for those who are in dire need now.
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has a resource portal to help advocates with outreach. Organizations can also join the campaign and be added to a listserv to connect with other groups.

Temporary Changes to the Guardianship Laws

In light of the quickly changing circumstances regarding COVID-19 and lack of access to the courts, Brandow Law would like to make our special needs families aware of temporary changes to the guardianship laws codified under Article 17 of the Surrogate's Court Procedure Act. It allows a stand by (back up) guardian to be designated in writing, in the event the primary guardian is unable to act due to illness or death:

FYI- For parents and caretakers of intellectually disabled or developmentally disabled minors or adults:

On April 7, 2020, Governor Cuomo issued an emergency executive order modifying guardianship procedures under the Surrogate's Court Procedure Act. It allows parents, guardians, legal custodians, and primary caretakers to designate a standby guardian by means of a written designation, without a court proceeding. This executive order applies to health care workers, volunteers and anyone who reasonably believes they have been exposed to COVID-19. Brandow Law can address any questions you may have regarding this provision.

Please contact us at 631 675-2540 or email [email protected].

Parent to Parent of New York State

[03/24/20]   JUSTICE IN AGING:

In response to COVID-19 concerns, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has made significant changes to its operations and policies. As of Tuesday, March 17, local SSA offices are closed to the public indefinitely. SSA is also extending their deadlines for filing wherever possible. The agency is also regularly posting information about how the pandemic is affecting its services.

Some SSA employees in local offices are continuing to work on SSA’s highest priority workloads.

These include:

Requests for “dire need” benefit payments, for individuals who did not receive their regular monthly payment, are currently homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, or whose benefits previously were suspended and can now be reinstated.
Disability applications for those with the most severe disabilities.
Changes of address, changes of direct deposit, changes of representative payee, and reports of death.
How to Reach Your Local Office
Local offices continue to provide some services over the phone. You can now find the direct phone number for each local office by zip code. To find your local office number, look below the result for the local office, scroll down past the listing of the hours, and click on the plus sign to "Show Additional Office Information"—the phone number for the local office will be shown here. Online services also remain available. There are not enough SSA employees currently available to handle the call volume to the national 800 number, so callers will likely experience extremely significant delays or inability to access the line.

Continuing Disability Reviews & Overpayments
SSA is not starting or completing any medical continuing disability reviews (CDRs), and has suspended processing and collecting most new overpayments. Some automated processes will still proceed because there are not enough SSA employees available to take the manual actions necessary to stop them. However, SSA will continue established collection activity for existing overpayments.

Hearings
Currently, all SSA hearing offices are closed to the public. All in-person hearings before an Administrative Law Judge have been cancelled, and claimants and their representatives who are scheduled to have a hearing soon are being contacted to schedule telephone hearings. Postponements are being granted for anyone who declines a telephone hearing. Individuals are not required to do a telephone hearing, but if they decline to go forward with a telephone hearing at this time, it could be months before an in-person hearing is scheduled for them.

The status of each Disability Determination Service (DDS) varies, as these are state entities that contract with SSA to work on disability cases. The decision of whether or not to close the DDS is made by the governor of that state.

Scam Alert
SSA is not taking any new, manual actions to reduce, suspend, or delay any benefits during this period, although automated actions may continue. If an individual receives a communication threatening to suspend or discontinue benefits because SSA offices are closed, this is most likely a scam, and should be reported to the Inspector General.

As the COVID-19 public health situation is developing rapidly, these policies may change in the days to come. Please check SSA’s website for updates, and contact Kate Lang at [email protected] with any questions or concerns you have about what you and your clients are experiencing at SSA.
