Medical Evidence Is A Vital Part Of SSDI Application Process

Needing Social Security Disability Insurance benefits can feel overwhelming. Many people have legitimate claims to these benefits due to a serious illness or injury that prevents them from working, but the application process can be long and complicated. Unfortunately, many first-time applicants are met with denials, which can feel disheartening. Luckily, Minnesota residents hoping to obtain SSDI benefits can set themselves up for approval as well as possible by providing important evidence during the application process.

Some of the most important evidence that an applicant can provide is medical evidence. This information must be objective and come from what the Social Security Administration deems an acceptable medical source. This information will help the SSA better understand the applicant's situation, and if the applicant agrees, the SSA can help gather medical evidence from applicable medical sources.

It is also important to keep in mind that throughout the review process, the applicant must continue to provide evidence as it comes to his or her knowledge. This information specifically helps the SSA determine the following details:

  • How long the disability has affected the applicant
  • The nature and severity of the disability
  • Whether the disability prevents the applicant from holding gainful employment

Knowing exactly what medical evidence could play a role in a SSDI application can be difficult, but often, applications are denied due to too little evidence. As a result, Minnesota applicants may want to provide as much supporting medical information as possible. In the event that their applications are denied nonetheless, they may want to remember that appealing that decision could be a viable course of action.
