I found this book very easy to follow and filled with practical advice on the essential "how to" methods of claiming and receiving the benefits that are rightly yours. Easy to read and understand, clearly written and organized. You can tell as you read this book the author has worked on the inside and is sharing the information that would not otherwise be easily found.
This is a superb book written from an insider's point of view. It is written in a conversational tone and is very easy to read. It is the one book you will want to refer to as you move through the disability appeals or application process. This book also contains helpful and easy to use advice with regard to other issues one may encounter. For example, there is a very extensive section on how to handle an over-payment appeal. Additionally, there is a very insightful look at the disability process with regard to a child applications. Hold on to this book. It may very well be the key to success in your dealings with the Social Security Administration.
Book is written by a lady who worked for a company who fights for benefits and takes all of the steps needed to help out someone who is trying to get benefits. She gives a lot of insight information and the book was written in 2013 so is current. She gives web sites to go to as well.
In this book, Angela Allen uses her inside knowledge gained from her years of experience working as a claims representative at the Social Security Administration to clearly and humorously help lay a solid foundation for what disability claimants need to know to successfully file a claim for SSI or SSDI. Also, this book helps those already receiving disability benefits to know how to stay eligible for receiving them by following the necessary rules. It has been my experience that Angela genuinely cares about the people she helps, and she even provides her email address if you want to ask her any questions.
Its not getting a star. The book doesn't give any tips that I didn't already know. All if the info in this book you can find on the Internet for free and the rest is just common sense. Was not worth paying for.
