Are you planning on taking the Direct Pay Exam in Baltimore on 5/18? NADR was instrumental in establishing direct pay for non-attorney representatives and has provided study sessions to help individuals prepare for the exam since the first test in 2005. Our course is self-paced, however, you must enroll no later than 5/5/16 to ensure plenty of time to review the modules. Included in the course is a live review session that will be held on 5/17 in Baltimore ($100 value). See course information below:

Course Outline:

  • Part 1- Includes the following:
  • Introduction, by Eva Sirman: This intro presentation discusses NADR's role in securing fee withholding for non-attorney representatives, introduces the module presenters, and covers test taking tips for the exam.
  • Technical Issues, by Philip Litteral: This module covers issues such as SSDI and SSI eligibility, appeal procedures, fee issues, and other benefits.
  • Procedural Issues, by Lorie McQuade: The user will understand the hearing procedures that are important for the exam such as setting the time and place of the hearing, objecting to experts, submitting evidence, and reopening claims to name a few. 
  • Part 2 - Medical Issues, by Lorie McQuade:  Lorie will take the user through the complicated process of evaluating medically determinable impairments in disability claims. Special instruction is given regarding the use of SSA's Listings of Impairments, which make up Step 3 of the Sequential Evaluation Process. 
  • Part 3 - Vocational Issues, by Lorie McQuade: Focusing on Steps 4 and 5 of the Sequential Evaluation Process, this module will go through the important citations regarding vocational evaluation of claims, with special attention paid to understanding of the medical vocational tables or "grids". 
  • Part 4 - Ethical Issues, by Eva Sirman: Eva concludes the course by discussing the affirmative duties and prohibited actions of representatives, as well as other rules of conduct. 

Several Q&A live conference calls throughout the duration of the course have been held, and the recordings are included in the correlating modules.  A 50 question sample exam has been distributed and an answer key and live discussion will take place as well. Glenn Skinner, Barbe Manna and Eva Sirman will also lead a live review session on site in Baltimore the evening prior to the exam.  All of this is included in the cost of the course. Participants also receive a quick study guide full of basic information that should be memorized. 

We want to do everything we can to not only prepare you for the exam, but to also help you succeed as a representative! The cost of the course is $250 for NADR members or $500 for nonmembers.
