Once you have filed your Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) application, do not assume that the Social Security Administration will handle the rest. Many people assume that all of their medical records will be assembled by the Administration before rendering a decision. However, the Social Security Administration almost never gets all of your medical records that would support your claim. They simply don’t have the time or manpower to accomplish this task.
Upon receipt of ones denial, it becomes obvious that the medical records which the Social Security Administration reviewed when rendering their denial where incomplete.
Even if the Administration has secured your doctor’s records they often do not provide the specific type of information that the Administration is looking for in order to determine whether or not you qualify for disability status. An experienced attorney will be able to secure all of the relevant medical records as well as RFC forms that may mean the difference between a denial and approval.
