In order to qualify for Social Security disability or Supplemental Security Income, you must demonstrate that your illness prevents you from working. In order to do so, you have to work closely with your doctor and properly document your condition. Our attorneys will work closely with your doctor to effectively communicate the impact of your disability to the Social Security Administration.
Putting Your Social Security Claim Back in Your Hands
In order to get the SSD or SSI benefits you deserve, you need proper documentation from your doctor. A letter from your doctor simply stating that you are disabled is not going to be enough to qualify. The Social Security Association requires precise information from your doctor that is specific to your condition and which describes how your condition affects your ability to function at a day to day job.
At the same time, your doctor is not a lawyer, and it is unfair to expect your doctor to provide proper documentation if he or she is unfamiliar with the process. As a law firm dedicated to Social Security law, we understand what type of information the SSA needs from your doctor, and we know which disabling conditions the SSA recognizes.
