A practical, comprehensive and affordable reference book which covers the many aspects of how work activity affects a person’s right to Social Security, SSI, Medicaid and Medicare. This is our twelfth edition of the Manual and the 2007 version is the best ever.
The Manual contains the latest citations to all relevant Social Security laws, regulations, policies and selected case law, with many tips to assist advocates through this maze of regulation and policy. The Manual is written in an outline format which makes it easy to use as a reference book. Many examples are used to illustrate various points and forms are included to show how to develop a PASS proposal and calculate the amount of an SSI check. The Manual is a handy resource tool whether you are an advocate, rehabilitation counselor or consumer.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits are governed by federal law, regulation and policy. Therefore, the material in the Manual applies to every state of the country.
