Skinner and Associates’ Story

SteveSkinner and Associates, Incorporated was started in January of 2004 by Steve Skinner and his wife Karen.  Steve served in the U.S. Air Force from 1980 to 2000.  During this time, he earned a Bachelor Degree from the University of Maryland.   After retirement from the Air Force, he went to work for the Social Security Administration as a Claims Representative.  It was then that Steve realized he could provide more assistance to the disabled seeking benefits as an advocate. Since 2004, Skinner and Associates has grown from a one man shop to a seven member team of experienced and respectful Case Managers and Representatives.  Our office has been serving a wide community with a majority of our clients living in Northern California and Southern Oregon.


We are Accredited Disability Representatives (ADR) through the National Association of Disability Representatives.  The ADR creed is that all action taken will be in the client’s best interest and result in no harm coming to the client.  ADR’s shall hold the client in the highest regard, with the client’s welfare the sole objective of the ADR’s efforts.


Steve Skinner is currently the Vice President for the National Association of Disability Representatives (NADR).  He is also on their legislative committee which visits Washington DC several times yearly advocating with various political groups for the rights of our disabled citizens.  NADR can be found at  This website can serve as a reference for your friends and relatives in other parts of the United States.
