What medical information (and non-medical information) will Social Security seek to obtain?


During the initial disability claim interview, a claims representative at a local social security office will obtain a claimant’s medical information, including the names of any treating physicians, clinics, hospitals, and other medical providers. They will also gather dates of treatment.

The claims representative will also gather information about your work history over the last 15 years. This will include the name of your employer(s), their address, phone number, the specific dates you worked there, your job title, and details of your position and the types of work you performed. This will also of course include your rate of pay.

Other non-medical information they will gather is your proof of citizenship, your date of birth, and marriage status.
