LAW OFFICES OF SHERYLYL GANDEL MAZUR
COVID-19 CHANGES IN OPERATION
March 23, 2020

Dear Valued Clients:

The State of New Jersey has received an Executive Order from Governor Murphy this weekend to stay at home. My office will remain open as it is an essential service law firm; however, the safety and security of my employees must be considered. There will be limited staff. I intend to be here to assist you with your concerns and status updates during this time.

Similarly, The Social Security field offices and hearings offices were closed to the public on March 17, 2020 and have not yet set a date to reopen. All SSA offices may be reached by telephone or by calling 1-800-772-1213. The entire nation is gripped by the CVID-19 virus. Our law office will continue to monitor the situation and follow CDC recommendations and will wait for further instructions from Commissioner Saul and Governor Murphy.

All Social Security hearings were cancelled from March 16, 2020 through Friday March 27, 2020 with the exception of the Elkins Park hearing office which is planning to proceed with a telephone hearing where the ALJ, the claimant and the attorney will each be at their respective locations. Commissioner Saul is then planning to allow all hearings to proceed over the telephone with all parties separated. Pease keep in contact with my office for the status of your case and your hearing office.

I thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. I hope that everyone stays home and stays safe.

Very truly yours,

SHERYL GANDEL MAZUR
