This book is essential for anyone dealing with a long-term or permanent disability. It is especially useful for professionals who deal with clients/patients who may be seeking SSI or SSDI benefits. While it deals with the technicalities of a bureaucratic system, the materials are presented in an easily understandable, and non-technical format. Samples of all the major forms used by the system are presented with guidance on how to complete them. Excellent glossaries are placed throughout the book. There is an explanation of what Social Security Disability is, proving a disability, appealing a denial of benefits, as well as a complete listing and descriptions of illnesses covered by Social Security.
Upon completion of the course you will be able to identify:
- What benefits are available to disabled children
- How age, education and work experience affect benefits
- How to prepare a Continuing Disability Review
- SSI Benefits and SSDI Benefits
- And More..
