Information Needed to Process Your Disability Claim Quickly

Claims for disability benefits take more time to process than other types of Social Security claims–from 60 to 90 days. You can help shorten the process by bringing certain documents with you when you apply, and by helping us get any other medical evidence you need to show that you are disabled.

Here is what you should bring us:

Information About You:

  • Your Social Security number and proof of your age
  • Names, addresses and phone numbers of doctors, hospitals, clinics and institutions that treated you and the dates of treatment
  • Names of all medications you are taking
  • Medical records from your doctors, therapists, hospitals, clinics and caseworkers
  • Laboratory and test results
  • A summary of where you worked and the kind of work you did
  • Your most recent W-2 form, or your tax return if you’re self-employed

The Social Security Administration will make photocopies and return your original documents. If you don’t have all the documents you need, don’t delay filing for benefits.
