Social Security Laws, Regulations, & Rulings

The website of the Office of Disability and Income Security Policy in the U.S. Social Security Administration provides a Program Policy Documents page that contains links to Social Security laws, regulations, rulings, and program policy and procedure documents. The following are highlights of the resources provided:

  • Social Security Rulings: Social Security Rulings and Acquiescence Rulings on Federal Old-Age, Survivors, Disability, Supplemental Security Income, and Black Lung Benefits.

Another online source of information on Social Security Law is Cornell University Legal Information Institute’s Social Security Library. To locate particular regulations or rulings, sections of the Social Security Act or court decisions, use the table of contents on the right side of the page. If you have a question or topic in mind, use the reference work Martin on Social Security. For the topics covered, it links to relevant portions of the Social Security Act, the Code of Federal Regulations, HALLEX, POMS, as well as important cases and rulings.
