Have you ever met someone who had a doctor’s letter stating they were disabled, and yet they still got denied for disability?

Wondering how this can happen?

Here’s how: In many cases, Social Security does not care that much what one doctor says one time. They want to see a history. They want to see that what the doctor said on this one day is similar to things that have been written over time in your records.

I know what you are thinking: I’ll just give Social Security all my records. Then they can see I have been having problems a long time. Problem solved!

If only it were that simple. Your records may be hundreds of pages.

Who is going to collect, assemble, read through, and carefully consider each sentence on each of these pages and find everything that is important to your case? Is your lawyer going to do this? Is your doctor going to do this? Is someone who works for Social Security going to do this?

If you are waiting for someone else to do this, you may basically be waiting forever.


Carnation Solves The Problem

Luckily, Carnation found a brilliant solution. She did it herself and created a medical history outline. Her outline was so good, and so helpful, the judge copied and pasted the entire thing right into her approval letter!

An outline like this is one of the best things you can do to help your case. Carnation was kind enough to share her medical outline to help others. Carnation’s case was approved fully favorable. Carnation Makes a Medical Outline


Rosemary Also Solves The Problem

Rosemary also created a medical outline. Her outline was different than Carnation’s and equally good. Please look at them both. Two months after she sent in this outline, she was approved. Rosemary Makes a Medical Outline

Rosemary was not well enough to do this on her own. She asked her sister for help. Her sister helped collect the medical records, made phone calls to the doctors office when records did not arrive, and also typed up the outline.

If you would like to create a medical outline, and you are not well enough to do this, please ask a friend or family member to help. This is something anyone can help you with. They do not need to be a lawyer and it requires no special training, just a lot of time and patience.


Want to Make Your Own Outline?
