There are literally thousands of rules and regulations pertaining to The Social Security Act, such that laypeople often find themselves shut out and needing advice from federal employees of the agency, lawyers (generally for the disability program), and other financial advisers.  But as Tom Margenau writes in this piece, there are some good resources available for those that want to know more or have their questions answered through just a little simple research. The POMS is the primary resource guide for SSA employees.  It is the Social Security Administration’s Program Operations Manual System.  The Social Security Handbook is a much shorter version of the POMS at only about 700 pages and it is at by typing “Social Security Handbook.”  His full article in is here.

Tom also has a book with all the answers for Social Security called Social Security: Simple and Smart.  You can find the book at or on Amazon or other book outlets.  To find out more about Tom Margenau and to read past columns, visit
