This comprehensive introduction to the Social Security disability system begins with basic information and builds with each chapter for thorough coverage in an easy-to-read style. In each chapter, the author uses a gender-neutral character, “Chris” to pose questions and find solutions during the appeals process as a way to personalize the content and procedures, and to enhance understanding. This book is primarily directed toward paralegal programs and undergraduate legal studies or social sciences courses. As a supplemental text in a Health Law or Administrative Law course or as a reference text for law offices, this book will assist those legal professionals involved in the more than 500,000 claims heard by federal administrative law judges each year. It introduces and familiarizes the student with the disability claims process with reference to the appropriate governing regulations rather than a tedious review of case law.

After a careful review of this book, it is my opinion that it will provide invaluable information for a newcomer to Social Security Representation as well as others with more experience. Wolf and Prozcek did a very good job and find myself referring to this book several times each week,to make…

Social Security Disability Representation This book is well designed. I used it to train people in representing individuals before the Security Administration who work for me. It provides a detailed analysis of the process and is wonderfully informative. However, a person who does Social Security Representation professionally will still be needed to add things that the book does not go into enough detail explaining or explain things that are exceptions to what the book says.
