The Guide:  
Social Security Benefits
And Work Incentives


2010 Version, 18th Edition
By Michael Walling  

 

Originally produced in 1994 and updated each year, The Guide, 18th Edition,  explains

SSA rules and regulations, in combination with the author's 13 years of experience in providing

vocational rehabilitation services and sixteen years of nation-wide training on benefit programs. 

The Guide explains how myths and uncertainties can be replaced with facts and knowledge

to empower people to make informed choices and to be employed.

 

There is nothing like it!  The Guide is written from the viewpoint of supporting a person

receiving benefits. It extracts every legal and ethical incentive available and puts them to

work - for the person!

Managing Your SSDI Benefits and Income

Handbook, 14th Edition

 

and

 

Managing Your SSI Benefits and Income

Handbook, 14th Edition

 

 

Two tools to solve the most pressing problem encountered by individuals with

disability who earn income.

 

Each handbook explains, in simple terms, how an individual can report income, track

changes in benefits, and determine what benefit amount he/she is eligible to receive. The

simple recording techniques enable most beneficiaries to independently, or with minimal

support, manage benefits. The recording techniques, properly maintained, enables the

person to know where s/he stands in the benefit program and avoiding future overpayment

situations.

 

The techniques found in the handbooks can assist staff charged with representative payee

responsibilities to report income correctly ( representative payee organizations may be

responsible for overpayments ).

 

The handbooks will solve the most important issue related to benefits eligibility and

employment. "How do I report income, and what amount of cash benefit am I eligible to

receive or keep?"
