I know I am disabled but I don’t really understand the causes of my disability.
It is very important that your doctor conduct a thorough medical examination and refer you to the appropriate specialist. Your doctor should be the one to make an assessment of your disability
and provide specific information about why you cannot work. With this in mind, it is crucial that any medical information you give to your insurance company be complete and accurate. You may be tempted to understate your disability
in the hopes that a smaller claim may prompt your insurance company to start disability
payments. However, any information you provide about your disability
will be used to make a decision on your claim, so that information should be accurate and supported by your doctor’s findings.
