How to Use this site.  If you are new to the process of Social Security Disability, I recommend you start by reading the "disability process."  This page will give you an overview of how your claim is processed and what procedural steps you have to take.  To understand how SSA determines if you are disabled you should read the page, "am I disabled?".  After you read this page, you should follow the different links to get a better understanding of what it takes to prove your disability.  I also strongly suggest you read "how to win" and "key to SSDI and SSI".  There is a lot more information on this site, but this should give you a good starting point to help your claim.
     If you need tips on how to win your SSDI or SSI claim, continue to read this site and bookmark it so you can come back and use it as a reference while you take on the Social Security Disability process. Please note that it is my intention to provide accurate and up-to-date information on this site, as I put in great effort to do this. However, the information on this site is not guaranteed and no lawyer-client relationship exists.  This site is not a substitute for consultation with a lawyer.

Trouble getting medical evidence from your doctor?
One problem many people trying to get Social Security Disability benefits face is uncooperative doctors offices.  I have found this to be a much bigger problem for those who have little or no insurance and go to clinics compared to those who have good insurance and go to private doctors.  There are many reasons for this but I am going to stick to how to try and work around this issue to give yourself the best chance of winning your claim.  The first mistake many people make is to rely on SSA to get your medical records.  Many doctors and clinics simply ignore request for records whether they come from SSA or a lawyer.  It is also a mistake to think that because you have a lawyer you do not have to worry about getting medical records.  I have handled thousands of SSDI and SSI cases and I can tell you that you must follow up with the doctor or clinic constantly.  The standard response at many doctors offices and clinics is that they never got the request.  Then they tell you to send it again and then you do.  You then call back and they will tell you they did not get it.  This can go on and on.  If your lawyer tells you he needs your help getting records and asks you to go down to the doctors office to pick up your records, do it because it is for your own good.  If you are having trouble getting a doctor to fill out an RFC for you, it can sometimes help to make an appointment and bring the form with you.  I say this because the doctor will be getting paid for his time when filling out the form and; therefore, more likely to do it.  If you are trying to get opinion evidence (report,RFC) from a doctor choose a doctor who you have a good relationship with and who you think or know believes you are disabled.  Not only will they be more likely to do it, but it is also more likely it will be a detailed and helpful report.  If all else fails you can ask the ALJ or SSA to subpoena the records.  This does not even work all the time.
