Information

Why Attend?

  • Review the basics of the disability programs included under the Social Security Act and what is involved with pursuing a disability case including filing deadlines, what to do if you miss a deadline, and how to deal with the Social Security Administration, clients, medical providers, and fees
  • Discover more about the interplay between Social Security benefits and other benefits including Workers’ Compensation benefits, Veterans benefits, and Long-Term Disability benefits
  • Examine important changes in the evaluation of opinion evidence
  • Obtain practical tips to effectively represent your clients at hearings before the Administrative Law Judge and to help you question your clients and vocational experts at hearings
  • Get updates on recent 4th Circuit cases that significantly help Social Security disability claimants

Social Security Disability cases are filled with pitfalls for the unwary practitioner. Due to the increasing number of denials by the Social Security Administration, there is high demand for attorneys who can help claimants navigate the complex world of a Social Security Disability claim. Knowledge of the Social Security Administration evaluation process and how to build your case is crucial to winning.
