What kind of evidence do I need?
Both medical and non-medical evidence is needed to prove your disability case.
It is extremely important to regularly visit your doctors for your medical conditions. During these doctor’s visits you should make a point to mention your symptoms and any side effects from medications you are on for your conditions. In addition to medical records, our office prepares specialized questionnaires for your doctor to fill out describing your conditions, and how your conditions affect your ability to work.
It is important to let our office know anytime you have any tests run, anytime you see a new doctor, or anytime you are given a new diagnosis. The sooner we know, the more prepared we will be for your Social Security Disability hearing.
Since Social Security Disability eligibility is based on more than just a medical disability, it is important to keep or collect non-medical information that will make it easier for Social Security to award you benefits. This includes tax information, information about the type of work that you performed, an original birth certificate, and any workers’ compensation or private disability claim information relating to your conditions.
Even if Social Security has not asked you yet for this important information, it is a good idea to start collecting it as soon as possible. The sooner you get this information to us, the easier it is for Social Security to make the correct decision in your case.
