Medical Records and Evidence Needed in a Disability Claim

How old are you?Step 1 of 11

Applying for Social Security or SSI disability benefits is all about your medical records. In most cases, you won't even see a Social Security doctor, so Social Security claims examiners will be making the decision almost solely by reading the records they get from your doctor. So it's important to have the right records, the right test results in those records, and a relationship with a doctor who supports your disability claim.
