Social Security Sent Me Some Forms To Fill Out About My Disability Claim--What Should I Do?

Posted by John Kuhnlein | May 18, 2016 | 0 Comments

Once your disability application is complete, Social Security will send it for review to an organization called Disability Determination Services, or DDS. At some point, you are likely to hear from the person at DDS, called a disability examiner (DE) assigned to your claim. One of the main reasons a DE will contact you will be ask for more information about the medical problems that are preventing you from working. 

Please No More Government Forms

The most common way for a DE to find out more about you is to send you forms for you to fill out. How should you respond? I will discuss the most common forms in a series of blog posts. If your DE sends you a form to fill out, look for the appropriate blog post to see what you should do.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
