DEFINING DISABLED:  To be considered disabled a person must have an impairment, either medical or psychological in nature.

YOU MUST FIRST FILE: Regardless of what anyone tells you, if you are disabled and unable to work, you should file for benefits to pursue a claim for Social Security Disability. If you do not file then you will never receive approval on a Disability Claim.  It is important to get your claim filed as soon as possible.  The sooner you get in line with the Administration the better.  Unfortunately, it can take a substantial period of time to process and obtain an approval on a Disability Claim.

BETTER THE RECORDS - BETTER THE CHANCES:  It is important to understand that the Decision of the Social Security Administration will be based, in part, on your medical records.  Your medical records must document your injuries and/or disability.  The more detailed and up to date your records the better your chances of winning.  Updated, complete and current records will better present your case and your medical records should help convince the Administrative Judge of the seriousness of your condition.
 
KEEP YOUR APPOINTMENTS:  It is recommended that you follow-up on a regular basis with your medical provider before and while your Disability Claim is pending.  It is important that you continue with your medical care on a regular and ongoing basis. Even if your past medical records indicate that you are disabled, a judge may not be able to approve a claim for continuing benefits if you do not have current records or they are not available for review. If your current medical records are not available or you have not continued with care, it may be difficult to substantiate your Claim.
 
DOCTOR, DOCTOR, DOCTOR:  Some doctors and some medical providers may not be willing to ensure that your needs for detailed medical documentation are met. Better records detailing your Disability will improve your chances of winning your Disability Claim. Additionally, if you have not seen your doctor recently, it may increase the difficulty in obtaining supporting medical statements from your doctor.  And if you do not cooperate with your doctor you may have difficulty getting your physician to cooperate with you. If you lose your medical coverage before your claim for benefits is approved, as is sometimes the case, try your best to be seen by your doctor. If he or she will not see you then you should go to a free clinic, county health department or emergency room. While these treatment sources are not the best, they are better than nothing.
