SSI Applications Are Complicated
Gathering the necessary documentation for filing your Supplemental Security Income application with Social Security can be dizzying. You must not only include necessary documentation, but it must be detailed, accurate and complete.
There is a significant amount of information that you must include in your application:
- Personal information: This includes things like government-approved proof of age, citizenship or eligible noncitizen status, Social Security number, and the name of your spouse.
- Medical documentation: This includes information about your treating physicians, names of current medications, medical tests and more. More importantly, your medical records must be comprehensive, detailing how your disability affects you mentally and physically in your daily life.
- Work records: You must include detailed documentation of all sources of income, records of past employment, military service records, workers’ compensation benefits, state disability insurance benefits and more.
