Your Role

As your patient progresses through the application process, you will be asked to provide the following supporting information:

  • Detailed documentation of your patient’s condition and limitations that prevent him or her from working
  • Copies of your treatment notes, in as much detail as you can provide. It is helpful if these notes can be in terms that a lay person can understand
  • When needed, referrals to specialists and for diagnostic testing that is necessary to support your patient’s case
  • A residual functional capacity form or other statements related to the ability of your patient to perform daily activities

Individuals who can no longer work and must go through the SSD application process typically run into severe financial difficulties. They are responsible for all co-pays or charges for treatment, for the completion of forms, and for copying records. Attorney fees are paid out of the claimants’ past due benefits, only when the claimant is awarded benefits. The amount of these fees is limited by the Social Security Administration.
