My Doctor Has Told Me To Stop Working, Will I Get My Social Security Disability Benefits?
Maybe, maybe not! Help!
Your medical records must establish that you have a medically determinable impairment that is supported by objective evidence. So, for example, if you have back problems, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will want to see that you have MRI’s, x-rays, CT scans or EMG and Nerve Conduction Study tests that document that you really do have a back problem.
Next, the SSA will determine, based on your medical records, whether you can return to the lightest job that you’ve held in the 15 years prior to when you became disabled and whether there is other work you can do in the national economy.
It’s crucial that you have your doctor complete Residual Functional Capacity (RFC) forms that document your physical and psychiatric restrictions and limitations. A properly completed RFC will increase your chance of getting your Social Security Disability Benefits.
