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.
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.
