Social Security Advocate

I regularly use the ERE in the course of representing claimants in ALJ level claims. As a representative utilizing this system, I believe it would beneficial to have claimant's electronic files available at all levels of the claim. This would eliminate much phone and other traffic through the field offices, lessening their burden. At the very least, an ERE Bar Code should be sent to claimants at the commencement of... more »

JSON vs CSV data format

Often datasets are offered in JSON format which is useful for computer programmers but not so useful for researchers / analysts as JSON is not really human readable. https://json-csv.com is a JSON to CSV converter which transforms JSON data into a format that can be opened in a spreadsheet. Researchers can then easily dice the data with the spreadsheet tools. I thought I would share this with the community as it... more »

my ssa sharing

Let’s make it possible to send/share beneficiary documents through their myssa account. Allow a myssa account holder to email or call to make a request for a document not readily available otherwise. As an example they can request a 2013 1099 statement or their original award notice from 2011. When the account holder logs back in next day it would be available for print. This potential service would further reduce calls... more »
