Social Security Administration

If you are experiencing difficulties with the Social Security Administration (SSA) in obtaining disability benefits,* Supplemental Security Income (SSI), retirement or other Social Security-related benefits, or if you just need help in obtaining documents or other information, I stand ready to assist you.

If you are unable to secure the help you need from the following resources, I am happy to open a case in your behalf. A Privacy Act Release form will need to be completed and sent with a detailed explanation of your request for assistance to: 

  Office Location:  20 South Main Street, Suite 10 
 Janesville, WI 53545

  Mailing Address:  Congressman Paul Ryan
 1233-B Longworth HOB
 Washington, DC 20515 
  Fax:   (608) 752-4711

*Please note that if your disability case is pending review at the hearing or Appeals Council level, while I can inquire about the status of the application and/or hearing, I cannot compel the SSA officials reviewing your claim to issue a favorable decision in your case, nor can I compel SSA officials to expedite the hearing or decision-making process.  Additionally, because of the legal nature of such processes, it is recommended that you work with your legal counsel or a legal assistance organization as you prepare for your hearing.  Please review the link below entitled, “How does the Social Security Disability appeals process work?” for additional information.
