A Checklist for Disability Applications

Updated: Nov 6, 2019

Applying for disability can be daunting, but it does not need to be. Before making an application for benefits, gather the following information to help make the process easier:

1.) List of doctors you have seen recently for your disabling condition, including their name, phone number, and address.

2.) List of medications you are taking.

3.) List of jobs you have had in the last 15 years (for disability purposes, only the last 15 years are relevant, even if you have worked longer).

4.) Your spouse's Social Security information (your spouse's earnings may impact your benefits if you apply for Supplemental Security Income).

Having all of this information organized can help you with the application and give you peace of mind that nothing was missed.
