The Importance of Medical Records in Social Security Disability Claims

It is very important to obtain all existing medical records and submit them to the Social Security Administration. This applies to records for treatment prior to the onset date of disability since this often shows the chronic, long term nature of the problems. An individual who has had four back surgeries over a 15 to 20 year period usually presents a stronger case than one who has had one or two surgeries. You cannot rely on the Social Security Administration to obtain all records, and it is often necessary to supplement the information once you hire an attorney.
