Beyond the Basics: SGA Fact Patterns and Strategies for Dealing with Them


CLE Information May 2021 This course was approved for NOSSCR's Spring 2021 Virtual Conference. It is eligible for On-Demand credit, please check with karyn.reffsin@nosscr.org, if you have questions about your states eligibility or check with your Bar Association for their rules and regulations.

This session will assume basic familiarity with the Regulations and POMS on SGA and its impact on SSDI benefits. We will focus on situations that advocates encounter in several contexts: initial claims with recent work activity; clients seeking advice on back to work efforts; and SSA initiated work reviews and terminations that often result in overpayment. We will illustrate the rules and potential solutions by working through case examples.
