NEW TOOL HELPS PEOPLE COMPLETE DISABILITY FORM

Are you or someone you know planning to file for disability benefits?  There's a new tool to help. 

When an adult applies for disability benefits, a Disability Report (SSA-3368) is completed.  The form helps the SSA obtain information about an applicant's condition, and is the key to obtaining medical records. 

Now you can get tips right over the Internet on how to best complete the 3368.  Just click on any section of the form and you'll get a "plain language" explanation of what the SSA is looking for, why they need the information, and how your answers help them decide if you can get disability benefits. 

This new tool is your key to having the Disability Report completed before your appointment.  To take a look, visit http://www.ssa.gov/disabilityformhelp/
