What To Expect When Filing Your Medical Evidence For SSDI

If you have a medical condition that prevents you from working you may be entitled to Social Security disability insurance. Individuals who have a disability and meet certain medical criteria may qualify for Social Security disability insurance. Applying and getting approved for disability is a complicated process that requires a great deal of evidence, attention to detail, and time. That’s why getting help from a Social Security attorney in Westminster gives you the best chance of success. The Law Offices of Norman J. Homen specialize in helping clients gather evidence for, file, and appeal Social Security disability cases. Here’s what you should expect regarding evidence for SSDI.

Evidentiary Requirements

Medical evidence is the cornerstone of disability determination. Every single person applying for disability insurance has to present two different types of evidence: proof of impairment and proof of severity. The existence of a condition alone does not necessarily qualify one to receive disability. According to the Social Security Administration, the following are the claimant’s evidentiary responsibilities:

  • The nature and severity of the claimant’s impairment(s),
  • How long the claimant has experienced the impairment(s), and
  • Whether the claimant can still do work-related physical and mental activities with the impairment(s).

Evidence also includes providing your medical professionals as sources for your impairment. If the SSA wants further evidence they may also request you see a different professional of their choosing for the consultative exam. A consultative exam is requested when the claimant’s own medical evidence is not sufficient for determination. In this case, an additional exam will be performed which should provide conclusive evidence of the status and severity of the claimant’s disability.

The best approach to the evidentiary requirement process is to be transparent, thorough, and cooperative. However, compiling and filing all the evidence can be difficult, but a social security attorney in Westminster can help. If you are filing for Social Security disability insurance contact the Law Offices of Norman J. Homen right away. We offer free case evaluations, call us today!
