Government Resource Manuals

Some government agencies publish the rules, regulations and procedures for accessing public benefit programs in official resource documents and/or manuals.  These documents and manuals are often available online.   You can go directly to these websites and download these documents.  The information you find may be used to rebut an agency’s decision when advocating for your client at the local center or when filing a formal appeal.
