The importance of keeping treatment records when claiming SSDI

Disabled individuals who have decided to file for their Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits should keep in mind the importance of having a good record of all the medical treatment they have had before they file for SSDI.

SSDI examiners may sometimes have an impression that disabled applicants’ condition may not be considered as a serious disability if they have an inconsistent medical treatment record. Examiners may measure the seriousness of an individual’s disability through the medical treatment they have had before filing for their benefits. Disabled individuals who are undergoing medical treatment should keep all their medical records, including appointments with physicians, so they can use these records as a strong reference to support their disability claim.
