You may be wondering if there are different ways to improve your chances of being awarded Social Security Disability benefits.
You will definitely need to continue appropriate medical care. Social Security and/or the Administrative Law Judges who may be deciding whether or not you are disabled from work will require documentation by medical professionals as to the length and frequency of treatment, the duration of your impairments, and how specifically these impairments limit your ability to work. If you claim a condition is disabling, but you have received little to no treatment, this will not be viewed favorably on your claim, and will likely result in an unfavorable decision due to the lack of evidence.
If you are having trouble finding a treating physician who can see you regularly or cannot afford one, we have attached a list of Free Clinics here.
