Working With Your Doctors For Your Disability Claim
When you are attempting to earn Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, every piece of evidence that supports your case is crucial. When your illness is not visible to the naked eye, it only becomes harder to prove that you cannot earn income because of your illness. Thankfully, your regular doctor has a thorough understanding of you and your illness, but getting the right information from them can be hard.
Here at Brod Disability Law, our North Carolina team can help you work with your doctor to bridge the gap between the medical and legal professions. By doing this, you can increase your chances of earning these benefits. We can help you gather the right information from your doctor, which can save you precious time in your case.
Gathering The Right Evidence For Your Needs
Some doctors may not understand what the Social Security Administration (SSA) needs to see for them to accept your claim for benefits. As a result, they may try to offer you information that is lacking or irrelevant to your case. We work with your doctor to help them understand what best supports your claim.
We want your doctor to be objective in all their information, including:
- Medical records and notes
- SSA forms
- Letters to the SSA from their desk
- Recorded observations of your condition
The more thorough the information we get from your doctor, the better. We offer helpful suggestions about the documentation process to your doctor for better results for you. If your doctor is documenting what you report about your conditions and symptoms, for example, it can improve the outcome of your case.
