FAQs About Medical Evidence
What evidence does a physician give for an SSD case?
Why do you need to see an SSA physician to receive benefits?
What is past relevant work?
When you apply for SSD, the SSA considers not only your diagnosis and prognosis, but past relevant work as part of their assessment. You must give a clear past work history as part of your initial claim. The SSA then reviews each type of job you have had, and decides whether you could return to work at any of those positions. If they feel you could return to a past type of employment, they can deny your benefits.
