What is the most important thing to win your Social Security Disability case in Springfield Missouri?

What is the most important thing to win your Social Security Disability case in Springfield Missouri? When you apply for Social Security Disability benefits, either Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Disability Insurance Benefits (SSDI or SSDIB) you must show the Social Security Administration that you are unable to work at least 12 months because of a “medically proven” physical or mental condition. Notice I said you must prove this. It is not Social Security’s job to prove this for you.

Medically proven means that a doctor or other accepted medically trained person has diagnosed your condition or conditions. This is becoming more and more of an issue in every case and why you need to see a doctor ASAP.

Additionally, you must establish that the medically proven condition continues to leave you unable to work. Your application and testimony to the Social Security Administration typically are not enough by themselves. Your medical records also must show the same symptoms and limitations you report. The best way to establish that you remain unable to work is to continue to see a doctor regularly and honestly report how you are feeling to your doctor. This medical treatment and care should be done right up through the date of hearing. One visit is not nearly enough. Quarterly doctor visits are rarely enough in my experience at the Springfield Missouri ODAR.
