Navigating SSDI Paperwork & Processes

Unsurprisingly, applying for SSDI benefits requires extensive paperwork and documentation that proves you are in need of financial assistance. In addition to completing all forms thoroughly, you also must include necessary records and documentation, as well as a detailed explanation pertaining to why you are entitled to SSDI benefits.

Your application must include:

  • Your Social Security number and birth/baptismal certificate
  • The names, addresses, and phone numbers for all doctors, caseworkers, clinics, hospitals, etc. that have treated you, as well as records for all of your visits
  • Documentation for all medicines, including dosages, you take or have taken in the past
  • All medical records, including laboratory and other test results, such as blood work or imaging scans
  • Record of where you have worked, and a summary of the type of work you performed
  • Copies of your most recent W-2 Form, or if you were self-employed, your federal tax return.
  • Explanation of your condition, and its impact on your ability to work
  • Your permission for the SSA to request additional information from the healthcare professionals who have treated you.
