In addition to filing a Request for Reconsideration, you will need to provide the Social Security Administration (SSA):
- Your name, Social Security number, address, and phone number,
- Your Notice of Decision,
- Your attorney’s name, address and phone number, and
- The name, address and phone number of a friend or relative who knows about your medical condition.
The SSA will send the friend or relative a Third Party form to fill out and return to SSA. Picking the wrong person and not having an attorney review the Third Party form before it is sent back to SSA can destroy your claim. Administrative Law Judges often deny claims based on things your friends or relatives said thinking they were helping you!
What Else Do I Need?
SSA wants updated medical information for the time after you filed your Initial Application for Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). This information will include:
- A description of any changes in your medical conditions,
- A description of any new medical conditions you have developed or been diagnosed with by any doctor,
- The name, address, phone number, type of treatment, and visit dates for all doctors, hospitals and clinics,
- The names of over-the-counter and prescription medications you are taking, who prescribed them and any side effects,
- The name, location and date of all medical tests you have had and who sent you for that testing.
