Gathering Information for Your Social Security Disability Claim

By Kenton Koszdin on November 25, 2013

California Workers CompensationWhether you’re filing a new Social Security disability (SSD) claim or you’re fighting to have a denial of benefits reversed, information can be your strongest ally. The Social Security Administration (SSA) asks for certain pieces of information when initially assessing your claim and when considering any disputes you raise with their determinations about your disability or the amount of benefits to which you are entitled. Your attorney may also ask you for this information in order to ensure you receive strong, focused representation.

The sooner you begin gathering information about your claim, the better you can ensure you’ve covered all the necessary bases. Some key pieces of information that are vital to your Social Security disability claim include:

  • Medical records and other information about your disability, including test results, records from any surgeries you have had, and information about treatments your doctors have tried and how they have affected you.
  • Job information, including the titles of all the jobs you have held in the past 15 years along with details concerning the work you did in each job. You will also need to provide info on how many hours you worked per week and for what rate of pay, as well as how frequently you performed basic physical and mental tasks at work.
