Filed For Disability In Michigan

Your claim will be sent to the Disability Determination Service. Then a disability examiner will begin working on your case.

You will not have to meet the examiner personally. As all of your interaction will take place over the phone or through the mail.

You must complete a number of forms regarding daily life activities, work history and the affect of your condition.

The examiner will order your test results, doctor’s progress notes, and hospital records.

Examiner’s will often send questionnaires to a person you see often such as a neighbor, friend or minister to record the difficulties and affects of your condition on your daily life.

It is quite possible that your examiner will arrange for several doctors or psychologists to evaluate you.

While it may seem time consuming to apply for Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income.

It is possible that these questions can be broken into manageable chunks with adequate preparation.

The application process will be significantly easier and less time consuming with the following information readily available.

You will need Marriage information:

Disclose information on your current marriage as well as any of your previous marriages such as your current spouse’s along with previous spouse’s social security numbers and marriage dates.

Doctor information:

You will also need to disclose your current and past doctors to Social Security.

Your past medical records will factor into Social Security’s decision and they will need your current doctor in order to obtain new medical records.

You will need to provide:

  • A name, address and phone number for each doctor who has treated you for your condition(s)
  • Tests each doctor has ordered for you
  • Medications each doctor is currently prescribing you
  • What condition each doctor has treated you for

Hospitalization information:

Any hospitalizations related to your conditions will also factor into Social Security’s decision.

You will need to provide:

  • Names and addresses of all the hospitals/clinics you have been treated at for your condition(s)
  • Dates when you were admitted to each of these hospitals/clinics and whether they were emergency room visits, inpatient stays or outpatient appointments
  • What you were being treated for at each of these visits
  • Job history: You will need to provide information about all of the jobs you have held in the last 15 years. This includes what months and years you worked at each of these jobs and what rate of pay you were receiving.

The Application for Supplemental Security Income

You will need to know your gross household income as this information makes up the bulk of the Supplemental Security income application.

Physical and/or Mental Conditions:

Make a list of your conditions that limit your ability to work available to Social Security.

Assets: You will need to provide financial information including:

  • Vehicles that you own
  • Any life insurance policies you have
  • How much money is in your checking and savings accounts
  • Money you have invested in stocks, bonds, and IRAs
  • Property you own not including the house you live in
  • Other items that may be turned into cash such as collections
  • If you currently live with a spouse or parent, you must also report any assets that they have as well.

Be sure to provide Social Security with information of any money or property you have sold or given away within the last three years. Such as who received the money or bought the property and the sale price.

Disclose the financial information of any and all adults living in the house.

This allows Social Security to accurately evaluate the income for the household as they take any adult income within the home regardless of how they relate to you.

Carefully inspect each question on the application to insure that you are accurately evaluated.

Cliff Weisberg and his team have helped us through a very difficult and emotional process. we had tried on our own to work with ssa and ssd and ended up with no success and more frustration than anyone could endure.
