The Most Important Medical Evidence that Social Security DOES NOT Get! | Tampa Bay Social Security Disability Attorney

Since medical evidence of your functionality is the key to winning your Social Security Disability Claim you would think the Social Security Administration (SSA) would ask your doctors to comment on your functionality – what you can and can’t do – your restrictions.

SSA never asks your doctors to fill out residual physical or mental functionality forms (RFC) which are the most important piece of medical evidence you should submit. Why? I am not sure why but the fact that they don’t is something you need to be aware of!

Asking your doctor to write a letter about your restrictions and limitations or filing out a RFC is important.

The problem with asking your doctor to do that is that medical legal issues surrounding your disability may not be cut and dry. The issue of your functionality is complex and if the doctor does not understand what your are asking for or, worse yet, gives the wrong information your claim can be denied.

Obtaining information from your doctor about your functionality is best left to an attorney representing you who had a complete understanding of your case and what medical evidence should be submitted. Your attorney will send your doctor the right residual functional capacity form to compete and the right questions to answer.
