Social Security Disability Medical Records Request

Claims for Social Security disability are proved and won through supporting medical records. Without supporting medical records showing both the nature and the extent of a claimant’s disability, their claim is almost certainly going to be denied. Medical Records should be obtained directly from your medical providers going back at least to the time that you allege your disability started – and probably some period before. Medical records are generally obtained by sending a written request and release to each provider’s office. Once obtained, records must be sent to Social Security.In addition to records from medical providers documents can be used to support your case. This is especially true for children who may rely heavily on school records including IQ, speech, or other testing results. Other less formal records might also be submitted as evidence including reports from teachers, school assignments, letters from employers, and the like.
