Best Practices For Claimants’ Representatives

SSA Publication No. 70-061, January 2011

Frank A. Cristaudo

Associate Chief Administrative Law Judge

Social Security Administration

Office of Disability Adjudication and Review

We are pleased to publish the newly reformatted Best Practices Handbook for claimants’ representatives. It is our hope that all claimants’ representatives will use this handbook as a practice aid when advocating and appearing before the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review.

The Office of Disability Adjudication and Review is one of the largest administrative adjudicatory systems in the world. The claimants who appear before us may feel overwhelmed by the legal and administrative requirements associated with pursuing a Social Security claim. Therefore, it is important for those most closely associated with this effort to work together in a collegial and professional manner to make this process as efficient as possible. It is to this end that we publish this handbook so that we can successfully fulfill our joint mission to provide the best possible service to the public.
