Regular Federal employees or officials may not, with or without pay, represent a claimant
before the Social Security Administration (SSA). A regular Federal employee may, however,
act for his parents, spouse, or child or any person (or estate) for whom he is serving
as fiduciary, subject to certain restrictions. For clarification of these restrictions,
as well as the distinction between regular and special Federal employees, see GN 03980.005 Representation by Regular Federal Employees and GN 03980.010 Representation by Special Federal Employees.
