Social Security Resources


The best place to start when learning about the different types of benefits available from Social Security.


Make sure to book-mark this site! The Red Book contains general descriptions of disability-related policies, including SSA’s rules for working, in clear and easy-to-understand terms.

Keep in mind that the Red Book contains basic information and for specific instances you may need to search elsewhere or, as a client of A Path to Success, reach out to us for answers to your questions!


Apply for retirement, disability, and medical benefits online! Check the status of your application, request verification from SSA, update your address, and more on SSA’s websites.


If you can’t get the help you need using SSA’s online services, find the address, phone number, and map to any Social Security office by searching for your zip code.


Learn more about your options if you have received notice of an overpayment if you don’t agree, can’t pay it back, or need to set up a payment plan. If you are a client of A Path to Success, send in copies of paperwork from SSA and we will review them with you before you submit to SSA.


The public version of Social Security’s Program Operations Manual, the POMS is regularly used by SSA employees in the running of their programs. The POMS contains highly technical terms and instructions that may be unfamiliar. At A Path to Success, we have years of experience in using the information contained in the POMS system to help our clients.
