What evidence do you have to gather in order to prove that I am entitled to disability benefits?
Insurance companies are looking for “objective” evidence
of a disabling condition such as test results, x-rays, MRI’s, CT-scans. Often these test results don’t provide definitive evidence
, however, the more information regarding the medical reason for your disability
, the higher your chance of being approved for disability benefits
. Having your doctor(s) support your claim for disability
is also very important, and having them prepare the Attending Physician Statement, and adding additional information beyond the form’s questions, may enhance your chances of being approved.
