NEW TOOL HELPS PEOPLE COMPLETE DISABILITY FORM

Are you or someone you know planning to file for disability benefits?
There's a new tool to help. When an adult applies for disability benefits,we complete a Disability Report (SSA-3368). The form helps us obtain information about an applicant's condition, and is the key to obtaining medical records. Now you can get tips right over the Internet on how to best complete the 3368. Just click on any section of the form and you'll get a "plain language" explanation of what we're looking for, why we need the information, and how your answers help us decide if you can get disability benefits. This new tool is your key to having the Disability Report completed before your appointment. To take a look, visit:

Looks like good information and will be very helpful for those applying for SSD. I wish that it had been available when I was applying. It explains things very well. So many of their questions didn't seem to apply to our particular disability so I didn't really know how to answer them. This explains how and why and what they actually want.
Thanks Judy. Will it be put with the other disability information in the "Main Pages"?-I believe that the disability info is in the "What's New" section.
