A Life Full of Meaning: Some Suggestions and Some Material for the Future Training of Youth Leaders is an attempt at comprehensive thinking about the training of youth leaders. There are two key words, "training" and "leaders", and both are capable of several meanings. For many, "training" implies the learning of routines of universal application, short cuts, techniques, and drill. But techniques, though often important, are never enough in human situations; here, personal quality counts supremely and. The author emphasizes the continued personal growth of the leader and encourages thoughtful attitudes and sensitive understanding. Equally, "leadership" is not something unitary and constant. The book interprets in contemporary terms what is meant by training and leadership for youth workers, what is involved in terms of experience, skill, study, and reflection. This book will prove to be a valuable stimulus and guide to all who have at heart the interests of the Youth Service.

 Everything you need to know to get the most Social Security checks you are entitled to -- as fast as possible.

Ex Social Security claims representative (30 years with the agency) "pulls back the curtain" on what it takes to get approved for retirement, disability, SSI, and Medicare.

Cuts through the bureaucratic red tape and obfuscation and tells you in plain language what the law says and -- most importantly -- what the law MEANS and how it may apply to you and your situation.

You can get the legal facts from Social Security, but the language is spun by lawyers. The agency does not explain the consequences of the facts unless you have a solid background in the programs and are really good at reading between the lines.

Who This Book is For

Everybody in their fifties or early sixties and considering their retirement options.

People who have severe medical problems and are considering applying for disability benefits from SSA and/or SSI.

People who have already applied for such disability benefits and still awaiting a decision.

People on Social Security disability who want to understand better what happens if they work.

People on SSI who want to understand how their check amounts are determined.

People approaching Medicare either through age (65) or two years on disability.

People who've just suffered the death of a spouse.

Family and friends of the above.

Lawyers and other representatives who genuinely wish to help their clients.

Everybody who's currently working under the United States Social Security system -- (that is, almost everybody who's working inside the U.S. but not for a state or local government).

Several years ago, in an attempt to reduce their workload backlog, the agency instructed Claims Representatives to stop giving retirement applicants a breakeven analysis.

Here is the information you need to know to choose the retirement month right for you -- how the month you retire affects the amount of your checks, and how the rest of your life should affect your decision.

The legal facts are publicly available in Social Security's claim manual (POMS) which you can read online. But that won't tell you how to get the most benefits possible, as fast as possible.

Includes clearer and expanded explanations, comments on how the regulations are applied in real life, examples, pointers on how to legally help yourself and avoid common mistakes, and some true anecdotes that pertain to the content.

Get the insights of someone who worked in a Social Security field office for over thirty years.

This book is intended to help you help your Claims Representative -- and your disability counselor if you're filing for disability -- make the best -- and fastest -- possible decision. They'll love you for it.

Many people think SSA is "out to get them" and is picking on them personally.

Ridiculous. SSA employees are far too busy to want to "target" or single you out.

Most claimants are far more harmed by their own actions or failures to act in a timely fashion than by anything SSA does.

How to help yourself.

How to avoid sabotaging your chances of getting approved. MANY SSA claimant do stab themselves in the back.

* 2 things that delay the startup of benefit checks. The first has to do with your lifestyle, but the second can -- and should be -- cleared up BEFORE you file your application.

* The three questions you must ask yourself before you pick the month to retire

* What is your Full Retirement Age, and can you get checks earlier?

* If you became disabled -- unable to work -- tomorrow, could you draw Social Security disability?

* The biggest single reasons people are denied for disability. How to avoid the one that is always your fault -- and it's very common.

* When to hire a lawyer. Some lawyers claim you should have one when you file. That's a rip-off. Those lawyers just want an easy 25% of your back check.

Therefore, scroll up and download the inside scoop on applying for retirement, disability, SSI, and Medicare.

America's leaders say the economy is strong and getting stronger. But the safety net that once protected us is fast unraveling. With retirement plans in growing jeopardy while health coverage erodes, more and more economic risk is shifting from government and business onto the fragile shoulders of the American family. In The Great Risk Shift, Jacob S. Hacker lays bare this unsettling new economic climate, showing how it has come about, what it is doing to our families, and how we can fight back. Behind this shift, he contends, is the Personal Responsibility Crusade, eagerly embraced by corporate leaders and Republican politicians who speak of a nirvana of economic empowerment, an "ownership society" in which Americans are free to choose. But as Hacker reveals, the result has been quite different: a harsh new world of economic insecurity, in which far too many Americans are free to lose. The book documents how two great pillars of economic security--the family and the workplace--guarantee far less financial stability than they once did. The final leg of economic support--the public and private benefits that workers and families get when economic disaster strikes--has dangerously eroded as political leaders and corporations increasingly cut back protections of our health care, our income security, and our retirement pensions. Blending powerful human stories, big-picture analysis, and compelling ideas for reform, this remarkable volume will hit a nerve, serving as a rallying point in the vital struggle for economic security in an increasingly uncertain world.
