Proposed Revisions To Rules Of Conduct

     The Social Security Administration has sent over to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a package of proposed revisions to its rules of conduct for attorneys and others who represent Social Security claimants. If OMB approves the proposal, it will be published in the Federal Register for public comment. Social Security must then consider the comments and can send final regulations back to OMB for approval. At this point, it is impossible to say what is in the proposal.
     I cannot say whether there is a connection but a reporter at the Wall Street Journal has been working on a story having to do, at least in part, with Binder and Binder, which is probably the largest entity representing Social Security claimants. Apparently, the story will not be complimentary to Binder and Binder.

     Update: OMB has added a little more information on this proposal to its website. It is supposed to be a final rule. Since there has been no proposed rule, at least not one described in this way, Social Security is apparently proposing to bypass comments. Social Security can do this but they are not supposed to unless it is either rather minor or rather urgent. I cannot see the urgency so I suppose it must be minor.

    "Apparently, the story will not be complimentary to Binder and Binder."

    Without having any idea what the story is about, I would agree with that assessment 100%. Has anyone who dealt with them in any way ever been "complimentary" towards them?

    Mr. Hall, how do you a newspaper article is in the works that will be unflattering towards Blinder & Blunder?

    Know for a fact client calls them and they immediately start the application online and keep calling back to fill in all the online application blanks, then send the 1696, keep saving info before sending it off to SSA website, when they have enough and before you know it client is roped in for fee petition...never laid eyes on a real person...
