I get lots of questions at times from people for help on finding information on a variety of topics. It's really a matter of asking a search engine the right question, like recently I was asked for information on how much a person could expect to earn on Social Security, which is online, the Social Security Press Office has that information.
There are also a variety of companies out there that can help people with social security, especially when it comes to social security disability. One company that's been doing this since 1984 is Allsup, they state they have a 98% success rate and they are upfront with what their fees are. It is possible to file a disability claim without having to use a service, but many people find the paperwork process cumbersome and confusing and it can be a faster process when you are armed with information.
