Medical evidence needed for Social Security disability

Some Anaheim residents may have passing familiarity with Social Security disability insurance. However, many may not know the ins and outs surrounding SSDI -- how to apply for it, what medical conditions qualify, what kind of benefits one might be entitled to, and more. The process of applying for SSDI is not always straightforward. Sometimes, many complexities may come into play.

For instance, to apply for SSDI, often the claimant must provide some sort of medical evidence. In some cases, this may include evidence from a physical examination or treatment notes or reports. In other cases, the claimant may be asked to provide evidence from an MRI, CAT scan or x-rays. Mental health disabilities, too, sometimes qualify one for SSDI. In those situations, mental health records may be requested. For some, too, blood work panels may need to be provided.

Medical evidence must be recent. It must cover the present time all the way back to when the disability first appeared. Plus, the medical records must demonstrate that the condition is severe enough to keep a person from performing the standard work-related duties that may be required of them.

Presenting the necessary evidence is an important part when filing for Social Security Disability Insurance. However, it is just one part of the process. There are many other steps to the process, and navigating the sometimes challenging legal landscape can prove to be confusing. Attorneys are available to assist with the process, and ensure that the best case is presented. When filing for Social Security Disability Insurance, there is not a one size fits all solution. An attorney can help claimants explore their options.
