The Importance of Documenting Your SSDI Medical Claim

Scott Monge

Are you disabled and seeking Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits? Even if your disability is severe and obvious, you still need extensive documented evidence in order to be approved for SSDI benefits.

At The Social Security Disability Attorneys of Monge & Associates, we educate clients on how to build a case that meets the strict requirements set forth by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Our lawyers have helped thousands of disabled and injured people from throughout the Southeast.

Our SSDI claim attorneys represent people from throughout the Southeast.

Documenting Your Disability

One of the most important aspects of documenting your disability is working with your doctor. Most doctors are not familiar with the intricacies of the Social Security Disability system and do not think in terms of SSDI claims and appeals. There are a number of things you can do to document your disability that can give you an improved chance of success:

  • Be honest with your doctor! Saying your fine just because you don’t want to complain is not going to help your claim. Be honest and detailed when telling your doctor how your disability affects your life and your ability to work.
  • Get regular medical treatment. A record of treatment is necessary in pursuing SSDI benefits. You will need to see your doctor more than once or twice a year.
  • Make sure your doctor takes notes about your disability. Doctors, nurses and other medical professionals may not be familiar with SSDI requirements. We can talk to your doctor and explain the importance of documenting your disability.
  • Follow your doctor’s orders. It is very important that you follow through on all prescribed treatments and medications. Even if the treatment does not work we must demonstrate that you are trying to get better.

Documenting your disability may seem like a complex process, but our attorneys can make it simple for you. We will make sure the Social Security Administration has all medical records relevant to your disability. We will do everything in our power to help you achieve a successful result.
