WHAT DOES THE SSA LOOK FOR IN AN APPLICANT?

WHAT DOCUMENTS DO I NEED TO APPLY?

Applying for SSD or benefits is more than simply entering your information into an application. You need to provide the necessary documentation about your case. The SSA requires that you supply current and previous medical records relative to your condition as well as records of any treatment methods. Your current medical records should be no older than 60 days to provide the SSA with an accurate portrayal of your condition. Your older records should date as far back as the very first record of the condition to establish a pre-existing complication.

You will also need to provide evidence of your vocational history, including past jobs you have held, your last job, duties performed, job titles, length of time worked, and more. You can trace most denied claims back to incomplete or inaccurate job history. You should not underestimate the importance of getting your work history correct the first time. Ask for a lawyer’s help if you are unsure of what the SSA is looking for.
