What Not to Say When Filling Out Social Security Disability Papers

It's more important to focus on saying as much as you can about your disability.

What an individual  filing for disability  should worry about is what they should say while filling out their disability paperwork, rather than what they should not say. The outcome of many disability claims depends upon how well an individual's disability paperwork is completed. Disability decisions are based upon a lot of information, and the main source for that information is the disability paperwork provided by the claimant at their initial Social Security disability interview (or on the form you fill out online). Giving a detailed account of your condition, medical history, and work activity can allow a disability claims examiner or administrative law judge to make a favorable determination in your  Social Security disability claim.
