Here are some ideas to help your Social Security Disability case.
If you need a cane or walker, make sure to ask the doctor for a prescription.
This provides objective evidence to SSA.
If you have problems walking and standing for distances, make sure to ask your doctor to complete a disability parking placard for the Secretary of State.
This will alert SSA to your problems.
If you are having problems with using your hands or need to elevate your legs, make sure to ask your doctor for a note explaining your special needs.
This lets SSA know the severity of your problems.
It never hurts to get this type of evidence early into your case.
Remember Social Security must decide two things.
First, are you disabled.
Second, when did you become disabled.
