What Should Your Application for SSD Benefits Include?
When you need federal disability benefits, you must file an application for disability with the Social Security Administration (SSA). Every section of the application must be filled out correctly, and this includes supplying the SSA with all of the documents they need.
The following information must accompany your application for disability benefits:
- Legal name and mailing address
- Social Security number
- Birth certificate
- Doctor’s contact information
- Prescription information
- Work history
Your application must also include information about how your condition is affecting your life. Most importantly, you will need to provide evidence, such as medical records, that your condition qualifies for disability and that your condition is of such severity that you are unable to work.
Getting the application right the first time means getting your benefits faster. With help from a disability lawyer from our office, you can rest assured that you will have a mistake-free application from the beginning.
