In1998 an accident broke my neck @ 2 levels leaving me,a father of 3 school age kids crippled with no way to earn a living. So I applied for SSI disability Living in a small country town I was drawn to Binder and Binder(from Now on referred to as B&B) by their non stop TV commercials. After hiring B&B I was assigned a "Case Rep."each time I called B&B to tell them they made another mistake like,Spelling my name wrong and retrieving some strangers med. records, adding them to my file,presenting them to SSI, and I was billed by the hosp. that sent the wrong records.I was assigned a new case rep who ,not only had a VERY hard time with the English language but knew little or nothing about my case. They butchered my paper work so bad that I had to redo it myself or my case would have been closed! So I fired them, in writing (As Per SSI instructions. B&B called,apologized and assured me that there would be "No Charge".

Well, 7 years later ,after winning approval all by myself, I get a letter from SSi stating that they will be with holding my entire monthly checks for 4 months due to them "over paying me." B&B petitioned SSi for payment claiming that they were owed over $4000 for the paper work that they did in the 30 days before I fired them! Thank God I knew enough to appeal this decision and still had all the paper work to prove my appeal. I called B&B and after much arguing they changed the amount wanted from me to $1,400.I had to appeal this decision as well. For a law firm that says they have the disabled best interest in mind, They sure fought hard to take my only source of income for doing nothing more than complicating my case.

Very Very Important!

AUTHOR: Pssedoff - (U.S.A.)

If you have hired the crooks at Benum & Bendum and your case is taking years and years ,There is a reason, Binder & Binder is paid a percentage of the total amount YOU are to receive from SSI,IF and when you win your case SSI will back to the date of your 1st application ,a.k.a. Back Pay.So if you are entitled to$1000. per month,B&B will be paid 22% or $222. for every month that they can DRAG your case out, the longer it takes to win, the more they make off of you! So they have no incentive to win your case in a timely manner. It seemed to me that the "Mistakes" they made were a delay tactic ,the more appeals they make on your behalf can be billed above the 22% . Meanwhile , You go broke and life is hell! Very,Very Important! When you fire them ,send a letter (Certified) to B&B and SSI at the same time, Give detail, dates of why they were fired and what paper work/ records were screwed up, and keep copies of EVERY THING!! After fighting them to keep them from garnishing my SSI checks to the tune of $4000,** + and winning this fight, they petitioned a different SSI office for payment and the fight started all over again! I won my appeal and B&B promptly petitioned SSI for over $1,000 claiming they did paper work on my behalf. I was able to show that the reason they were fired was the butchering of ALL my paper work and won this fight too! Keep EVERY THING and get a local Laywer!!!

Binder & Binder Eat My Shorts!

AUTHOR: squafdonoboles - (USA)

LIES, LIES LIES!  For three years I've been waiting for Binder & Binder to represent my SSD case. In July 2009 I was finally told that they could not handle my case because of "technicalities".  I went to social services, signed up for DCAP and got my SSD within three months, and for FREE! I highly recommend contacting your local DCAP office or the Department of Health and Human Services if you want REAL results.

Binder And Binder,What A NIGHTMARE! Response

AUTHOR: Cathy Okulski - (U.S.A.)

I had the same problem with Binder & Binder in New York and New Jersey. My nightmare lasted almost four years with them until I fired them in December 2008.

They botched paperwork, filled out paperwork on my behalf with the wrong information, I had to change case workers at least four times.

I was supposed to have a "real lawyer" for my hearing. Promised two to three times I would have an 'attorney'. Instead, they gave me a useless, pathetic, lying ss advocate who reviewed my file just minutes before the hearing.

I caught one of their reps in a lie . . . she said/she said until I said, "I kept the message you left, would you like to hear it?" This rep went into a three minute stutter after told her that.

I received medical records that weren't mine. I demanded they find out where my records were sent since I received someone else's but never received a response. 'Someone' will get back to me.'

It wasn't until I received a disc from SS that I found out what my disability was . . . high blood pressure?!?!? After reviewing all the information B&B (just paper shufflers) submitted and what SS had written I was dumbfounded. Binder & Binder are useless. They don't read. They don't care. They just want your money.

I kept a record of every phone conversation (dates, times, subject). I have a new lawyer now. If I ever win my case and Binder & Binder want part of my money, they will be in for a fight of their life. Not a penny will go to them.

Binder & Binder is a joke. They should be shut down. Their commercials are a complete lie. They make matters worse for you . . . not easier. If anyone hires them, after waiting two to four years dealing with them you'll have an additional disability to deal with.

Binder And Binder,What A NIGHTMARE!

AUTHOR: Pssedoff - (U.S.A.)

Did I mention that my local SSI office told me to send them all the letters sent to me by Bend-Um and Bend-Um (My lil nick name for them) because they had so many complaints about them that they had started an investigation which could lead to Binder and Binder losing their ability to handle Disability cases in WI.
