Representing clients seeking claims under social security and disability laws has recently become one of the most popular and steady practice areas across the country. Social security programs are a significant source of cash and health benefits for individuals with disabilities. However, the procedures and formalities of a large federal agency can be intimidating for an unrepresented claimant. From the underlying substantive law to practical aspects of social security and disability law, this seminar will cover benefits, appeals, grievances, details of ERISA, social security settlements, and inherent delays. Related and often parallel issues arise in the context of veterans’ benefits. Nearly two million veterans have returned from service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of the 1.3 million veterans who have been discharged since 2001, almost half have filed for disability compensation claims.
