Important Things Every Social Security Disability Claimant
- The first and most important thing is the list of doctors and hospitals where the claimant received treatment. The claimant needs to gather doctors’ names, addresses, and phone numbers. At the initial stage, the SSA demands medical records. Providing these can drastically reduce the chance of denied applications.
- Along with doctors, the SSA requests to know the prescription drugs the claimant is taking. Having a full list will expedite the overall process.
- Information about the claimant work history is also very important. This should include the last 15 years, listing all companies, careers and jobs during that time. We can help claimants do this. With the Social Security Disability Lawyer Mableton trusts, we advise every client to remember not only employers and jobs, but their duties as well. A resume can help. The SSA also needs to know whether the client has transferable skills to other work.
- If the claimant is applying for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) rather than Social Security Disability (SSD),the SSA will want to see the claimant’s income. Bank statements, tax appraisals, assets, life insurance policies and other financial documents are vital. Additionally, the SSA will need information about living arrangements and household costs, such as rent, food and utilities.
