Preparing for a Social Security interview can be a nerve-wracking experience, and an Oak Lawn Social Security disability lawyer can help you to be fully prepared and put your best foot forward during your interview. If you are seeking disability insurance and are unsure what to expect during the interview process, the guidance of an Oak Lawn Social Security disability lawyer may prove useful.
Social Security Disability Interviews: Necessary Documents
Prepare for an hour or so for the appointment, and the more prepared that you are, the more smoothly it can be expected to go. Documentation to take with you includes a full medical history with the contact information for all medical providers and treatments received for your disability, including dates. Work history from the past 15 years will also be required. It is a good idea to go through a “trial run” with your Oak Lawn Social Security disability lawyer prior to your appointment to ensure that your file is complete.
Remember that No Determination Will be Made at the Interview
The purpose of the meeting is to review all of the necessary documentation and gain a better understanding of your medical and work history. You will need to provide a medical release form, as well as account information for payments in the event that you are approved.
Scheduling a consultation with an Oak Lawn Social Security disability lawyer prior to your interview will help to ensure that you have all necessary forms ready and that you are able to clearly and articulately describe your disability and how it has affected your life and ability to work.
