During this “non-legal” presentation, Mr. Rabin explains the different Social Security disability law and programs, reviews how Social Security analyzes claims and how to prepare so that the strongest case possible is made to the Social Security Administration. Mr. Rabin also explains the application process and how months can be shaved from the processing time. Practical hints are provided in how to deal with the bureaucracy, how to communicate with treating physicians, and how to minimize the chance of delays and lost files. Finally, the rules regarding how to return to work while on SSDI and SSI are outlined so that people receiving benefits will have accurate information when making the step back into the workforce.
This discussion will demystify the application and appeals process, and provide people with disabilities the information they need to protect and assert their rights under the Social Security Act. This is intended to be an open discussion between Mr. Rabin and the audience. Questions are encouraged and materials will outline the subject matter and provide room for notes.
