How Did it Go?


“My Doctor Said Yes”

If you talk to your doctor about your disability application and you find out your doctor is very supportive, be happy! This will be a huge help for your case. However, it does not mean you will be approved. Most doctor’s know little or nothing about Social Security policies (they don’t teach this stuff in med school!). Don’t worry, you are smart and reading here, so you can learn everything you need to know to have a great application. Next step: How to Have Great Visits That Create Great Records

“My Doctor Said No”

If you find out your doctor will not support your application or wants you to go back to work, still be happy! Be happy you asked.  Be happy they told you the truth.  Be happy you found out now.
