In a community collaboration, is it appropriate that an attorney handle the SOAR process as opposed to a case manager?
People from varying backgrounds, education and experience can successfully assist with SSI/SSDI applications using the SOAR process. It takes the right training and commitment!
Case managers can and do successfully represent applicants in the initial application process and the appeals process.
Attorneys in some communities are key members of the SOAR community and also assist SOAR applicants at no charge.
