FORGET TO TAKE ANY MEDICATION THAT WAS PRESCRIBED TO YOU FOR YOUR DISABILITY.
When disabled you are expected to take the medication your doctor prescribes you. If you have a valid reason for not taking it, such as you are experiencing side effects that are causing you pain, then be sure to communicate that to your doctor. That way if someone from the SSA is checking into the validity of your statement, there is a record of you stating why you didn’t take the medication.
FORGET TO TAKE THE MEDICAL EXAMS THAT ARE REQUESTED OF YOU.
The medical examination helps the Social Security Administration get the specific information they need to approve or deny your claim. If you are being asked to take a medical exam, this is usually a good thing because it implies they feel you have a real case. Showing up for it is vital in getting your claim approved.
TRY TO APPLY IF YOU DON’T HAVE A QUALIFYING CONDITION.
If you are hurt and feel like you can’t continue doing your job, you may be in a tough situation, however, you shouldn’t necessarily apply for Social Security Disability benefits immediately. Your injury or disability needs to be a qualifying condition. If you are questioning your injury, it’s best to seek the legal advice of a Social Security Disability lawyer first. Our consultations are free, so save yourself the trouble and ask one of our experienced attorneys.
APPLY IF YOU STILL PLAN TO WORK.
Trying to cheat the system and get disability payments when you are still physically able to do your job is, unfortunately, a common mistake people make. Don’t try to do this because the odds are, you will be caught and get into legal or financial trouble.
