When a person’s mental or physical condition leaves them facing death or unable to work for extended periods of time, they may meet Social Security Disability Benefit Qualifications. However, only certain conditions are deemed as eligible to qualify for such aid.

Even if a person suffers from a condition that allows them to collect benefits, there are still stacks of paperwork that must be supplied as evidence of the condition. The Social Security Administration (SSA) says that documents and records of a diagnosis of the condition must come from a qualified physician or other medical professional. Documentation from a medical professional treating the condition may be required as well, considering they are often the ones who can supply the agency with more information regarding how long the claimant will be affected.

This leaves many asking, “What kind of documentation is the SSA looking for as evidence of a disabling condition?” Items such as medical reports, laboratory results, and even transcriptions from consultations may be examined during the approval process for a claim.

Even when documentation is provided, a claim is still often denied. Records show that roughly 70 percent of initial claims filed for disability are denied.
