The complete guide to understanding-and benefiting from-the Social Security disability system

Nolo’s Guide to Social Security Disability is an essential book for anyone dealing with a long-term or permanent disability. Written both for first-time applicants and existing recipients of Social Security disability, the book demystifies the program and tells you everything you need to know about qualifying and applying for benefits, maintaining your benefits and appealing the denial of a claim. This comprehensive guide also explains:

  • what Social Security disability is
  • what benefits are available to disabled children
  • how to prove a disability
  • how age, education and work experience affect benefits
  • whether or not one can work while receiving benefits
  • how to appeal a denial of benefits
  • how to respond to a Continuing Disability Review
  • and much more

    This step-by-step guidance allows you to match medical details of your disability to the SSA regulations that will qualify you for benefits and shows how to apply for those benefits. Additionally, the author’s background in medicine gives him the distinct ability to decipher the medical portions of the SSA regulations as no one but a doctor could.

    The 5th edition contains: new and updated descriptions of SSA regulations governing immune and digestive system disorders; updated information on the “ticket-to-work” program (which provides new training and opportunities for disabled workers); the latest new SSA forms and instructions (with sample filled-in forms throughout), plus updated figures, fees, and contact information.

      Calaveras-cutie (Murphys, Ca United States) –

      Bought this book as part of prep for application for ssdi. (also bought how to get ssi and ssdi by mike davis and dis workbook for ss applicants by doug. smith).

And it goes on to explain how to keep your ssdi once you get your award. I did win my case the first try using the info in the 3 books.

      One of three best Social Security disability books, March 26, 2002

      Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

      As a lawyer I recommend three books to individuals who ask for help in getting their Social Security disability benefits. First is our Disability Workbook for Social Security Applicants. Everyone tells me that this book greatly simplifies getting disability benefits. I can testify that interviewing a client is much easier when he or she has used the Disability Workbook. Second, the book How to Get SSI and Social Security Disability, by Mike Davis, is insightful and easy to read. Mr. Davis is a former disability examiner. His clear explanations of common bureaucratic problems make his book one of my favorites. Finally, I use Dr. David Morton’s Nolo’s Guide to Social Security Disability. Dr. Morton is a former disability determination services staff physician who describes Social Security medical decision making better than anyone else I know. Every doctor who communicates with Social Security about patients should have Dr, Morton’s book on the shelf – and every disability lawyer. I give all three books the highest rating.
