Social Security law and regulations provide that you can be represented by an attorney or "a person who is capable of giving valuable help in connection with your claim" (20 C.F.R. 404.1705 b(2)). These persons are referred to by Social Security as Non-Attorney Representatives. All representatives before SSA are responsible to follow the same Rules of Conduct and Standards of Responsibility found at 20 C.F.R. 404.1740. A Non-Attorney may appear at all levels of administrative appeal before the Social Security Administration.
As Non-Attorney representatives, Christopher Marois and Michele Anderson Marois are proud to say that they have met the Social Security Administration criteria for participation in the Non-Attorney Fee Withholding Demonstration Project. They have presented documentation of successful claims, provided evidence of education and insurance, continue their education in Social Security matters with ongoing educational seminars and have passed an examination in Social Security law, regulations and rulings.
