Settlement of SSI Non-Disability Appeals Case, Amin v. Kijakazi

On April 3, 2023, the Eastern District of New York approved a settlement agreement in Amin v. Kijakazi, a case filed against the Social Security Administration (SSA) for the harm caused to extremely low-income older adults and people with disabilities across the country who lost vital benefits because of the agency’s failure to timely process appeals and follow its own rules for processing appeals.

The settlement provides wide-reaching relief by extending the period from 10 to 60 days during which Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients can file a request for reconsideration and continue receiving benefits while their non-disability appeal is pending.

Justice in Aging created a fact sheet with important information for advocates helping clients with SSI appeals. Read more about the case and the settlement.
