A Primer on Social Security Disability Law

Learn an overview of the administrative framework involved with Social Security disability claims.

A competent law practice in Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplement Security Income (SSI) involves administrative claims, as well as Federal Court practice. An attorney needs to have a working knowledge of the Social Security regulations, case law, Social Security rulings, in addition to internal regulations included in the HALLEX and POMS. Like most areas of practice, an effective Social Security disability attorney needs to expertise both in the law, but in the nuts and bolts procedural issues necessary for an efficient and profitable office. This topic is designed and focused on attorneys looking for an informative introduction to Social Security disability law and practical practice advice.
