Social Security Administration Evidence
Providing Evidence with the Help of a Hudson Social Security Disability Lawyer
The Social Security Administration (SSA) looks closely at the evidence you present regarding your disability and resulting inability to work. Insufficient evidence can lead to a denial and a delay in receipt of your benefits. You can avoid a denial by submitting sufficient evidence with your initial application.
Founded in 1986, Mike Murburg, P.A. solely concentrates on disability recovery. Our Social Security disability lawyers know which evidence you need to prove you qualify for Social Security disability benefits. Our legal team also knows how to present your case to the SSA for quicker approval. We help you to gather and organize clear, complete evidence that proves your case in your initial application. During our almost 30 years of existence, we have streamlined our procedures to most efficiently and thoroughly conduct your claims preparation.
Acceptable Medical Sources Evidence
SSA applies its own definition of disabilities, which you must prove in order to qualify for benefits. Evidence of the disability must come from an acceptable medical professional, such as:
- Licensed doctors
- Licensed psychologists or certified school counselors
- Licensed optometrists for visual disorders
- Licensed podiatrists for foot and ankle impairments
- Speech-language pathologists for speech impairments
The types of medical evidence you submit depend upon your individual medical condition and treating sources, but may include:
- Your medical history
- Doctor’s notes and findings
- Laboratory test results, such as x-rays, MRIs or blood pressure
- Your diagnosis and prognosis
- Prescribed treatments
You should also submit a doctor’s statement as to your limitations and abilities despite your medical condition that is based upon your medical evaluation. For an adult, your statement should describe your inability to engage in such work-related activities as standing, sitting, walking, typing, hearing, seeing, speaking, carrying, lifting and travelling. The statement regarding a mental impairment might describe restrictions on your capacity to understand and carry out instructions and your response to work pressure and coworker interactions. A statement regarding your child’s impairment would compare your child to others of the same age and explain their lack of ability to interpret information, complete tasks, interact with others, handle objects and care for him or herself.
Appeals Based Upon Medical Evidence Insufficiencies
The Social Security Administration often denies applications based on the applicants insufficient medical evidence. If you received such a denial, you can appeal your decision and provide additional medical evidence to prove your claim. Our attorneys advise you on filling in the gaps in your initial application and present a compelling argument for approval on appeal.
