Main Digest

These requirements for evidence, from your doctor and others that are clearly and concisely indicated, do not change. There will be no need to revise and issue subsequent editions as long as the SSI and Social Security Disability programs continue.

This book does not focus on regulations, legislation, or whether or not a final decision is rendered with or without a medical doctor or psychologist, because IT DOES NOT MATTER TO YOU, the disability claimant. These things may change, but one thing that does not change is the requirements for full and complete evidence.

It is not necessary that YOU, the claimant, know the body systems or listings of impairments or any other number of extraneous and complicated bits of law and medicine. What you do want and need is a short, step-by-step set of instructions that you can actually check off. These are provided for you in a few easy to understand pages that will give you ALL you need TO DO and TO KNOW to have the best chance of receiving a favorable decision.

These requirements for evidence, from your doctor and others that are clearly and concisely indicated, do not change. There will be no need to revise and issue subsequent editions as long as the SSI and Social Security Disability programs continue.

Your best chance of being allowed benefits is to follow the directions provided. Your time is best spent getting what the Disability Examiner and Medical Consultant are looking for when making a decision, not studying body systems, law, or medical terminology. The title says it all, this is a short HOW TO book from an author who has made thousands of disability decisions.

Every effort has been made to resist the temptation to include material that is professionally interesting to those in the disability field, but is of little value to the disability applicant and ends up driving up the length and cost of the book, and confuses rather than clarifies. Regulations, practices, political influences and legislation change, but the basic requirements for evidence do not.
