Proving Disability…so much more than a diagnosis.

Doctors and their staffs are busy people; their records about you often contain computerized checklists that do not focus on the details necessary to support disability. Disability is not so obvious.

Case reviewers know this.

In order to prove your case, your medical records must be consistent and supported by documentation of the functionally limiting effects of your diagnosis.

If you are having trouble sitting, standing, walking, lifting, carrying, sleeping, doing household tasks, getting along with others, focusing, concentrating, maintaining attention, let your doctor know, even if he or she does not specifically ask.

Limitations in your ability and functional losses are findings your doctor must report in your records to support disability.

Your benefit award depends on it!
