The Importance of Your Doctor's Statement in your Disability Case

In proving your disability claim, it is important to have a strong statement from your treating physician regarding your impairment and how it affects you. Your impairment, and any related symptoms, such as pain, may cause physical and mental limitations that affect what you can do in a work setting. Your residual functional capacity (RFC) is the most you can still do despite your limitations. The Social Security Administration will assess your RFC based on all the relevant evidence in your case record. Keeping this in mind, you should be open and honest when you talk to your doctor about your pain or how you are having difficulty.

Social Security back pay is the back payment of disability benefits to a person who is entitled to Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits in the past. Back pay may be weeks or even months of payments that is due to the individual.
