    Someone brought representation before the Social Security Administration to my attention early part of this year when I started talking about sitting for the USTC exam. They have also have a rule that non-attorney can represent claimants.

    Link: https://www.ssa.gov/representation/code_regs.htm  See Rule 404.1705(b) for language.

    There seems to be a common thread here with the federal jurisdictions: “non-attorneys can practice if…….”

    I love this stuff! Does anyone know of any other instances like this where non-attorneys can practice?

    Disclaimer: This is for my own personal hobby as a tax law nerd. I have no idea what the limitations are of being a SSA representative, I have no experience with SSA. Additionally, if you find this post to be a waste of your time and not applicable to the USTC upcoming exam, I apologize.

    (1) Has the right to practice law before a court of a State, Territory, District, or island possession of the United States, or before the Supreme Court or a lower Federal court of the United States;
