What types of medical evidence do I need?

Before you can receive Social Security Disability, the Social Security Administration asks health professionals to submit reports that include the following:
  • Your medical history
  • Results of physical or mental status examinations
  • Laboratory findings such as blood pressure and X-rays
  • Diagnosis
  • Prescribed treatment
  • Prognosis

What about evidence of pain?

Evidence that pain, shortness of breath or fatigue affects your ability to work influences the SSA’s decisions. The SSA considers evidence about:

  • Your daily activities
  • The location, duration, frequency and intensity of your pain
  • Factors that precipitate and aggravate your pain
  • The type, dosage, effectiveness, and side effects of medication
  • The treatments you have received for the relief of pain
  • The limitations that the pain causes you

Is SSD enough for me to live on in Fayetteville, Arkansas?

The average monthly SSD check is about $1,000. Once you qualify for SSD, however, you continue receiving benefits until you get better and land employment or you reach retirement age and Medicare takes over. While many SSD recipients are incapacitated, others can supplement their SSD income with a job. But the job can pay no more than $1,040 a month ($1,740 if you are blind) or you jeopardize your SSD benefits.

Filing a Social Security Disability claim in Fayetteville, Arkansas

While there are agencies that help the disabled file claims, hiring a Social Security Disability lawyer is the most affordable option because SSD attorneys receive payment only if your claim is approved. Furthermore, the Social Security Administration limits the amount an SSD attorney can charge — the fee is generally capped at a specified percentage of any back pay you are awarded.
