A Social Security Disability SSI Hearing Prep Video/DVD
There's a press release on Emediawire regarding a video (which can be purchased on either a VHS cassette or on DVD) for sale at the site, www.ssaprepvideo.com for roughly $40
As the release states, the video explains the role of the judge, vocational expert, and representative (your rep can be an attorney or a non attorney) at the hearing, and is written by Martin Kranitz who, for many years, has served as a vocational expert at disability hearings.
I can actually say a words about this product. I had seen the ads for probably a year or more, possibly as long as 2 years, so, recently, as in a few weeks ago, I decided to order it.
I have to be completely honest. I didn't finish watching the video but that's only because on the day I choose to view it, I seemed to have about fifty thousand interruptions. However, from what little I did see of it, it seems to be a fairly good instructional video.
The video takes you through the course of a disability hearing and has the feel of one of those educational films we all remember watching in high school. But there's certainly nothing wrong with that since the video's intent is educational. And for the purposes of explaining concepts as they relate to social security disability SSI hearings, it does a fairly good job.
I wouldn't have a problem recommending this video to any claimant who would like to mentally prepare for their hearing.
