As I have done in the past, I’ll be presenting a lecture to “New Practitioners” in the Social Security Disability Law field. I have always believed that in order to be able to teach a subject, you must know it cold. It is no different with Social Security Disability Law, and teaching new Social Security Lawyers is both challenging and invigorating.
hopefully I’ll need more brain and less brawn at the upcoming full day Social Security Disability Boot Camp Seminar where I will be presenting on April 18, 2012. I will be covering topics such as the difference between SSDI vs. SSI, Social Security Disability appeals, ALJ hearings and mental impairments, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“Here we are almost one year after President Obama signed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act of 2010 into law, and all the “pre-season” hard work of the Special Master and the Department of Justice brought us to the real “Opening Day” of the Victim Compensation Fund,” Mr. Rosasco said. “Now the long season of individual compensation claim evaluations and potential hearings will begin.” “A roadblock that claimants faced in order to get their fair share of the $2.775 billion Victim Compensation Fund has finally been lifted,” Mr. Rosasco’s partner, Daniel J. Hansen said. “Thanks to the Special Master, claimants will have ample time to fill out the forms. Now that all the formalities have been taken care of, these heroes who unknowingly worked in the face of danger are able to receive the compensation they justly deserve.”
