Can a Doctor's Note Qualify Me for Social Security

Posted Scott B. Cooper on Jul 11, 2012 in General

May 24, 2012 – A doctor’s note saying a patient is “disabled” is insufficient to win a Social Security Disability case.  Many people think that they must have their doctor say they are “disabled” in order to qualify for Social Security Disability.  This is incorrect.  An application for Social Security Disability must be supported by medical evidence such as doctors’ office notes and laboratory findings.  Any opinion by a doctor must be based on the doctor’s records and medical data.

The Social Security Disability attorneys Cook and Melissa Leininger with Schmidt Kramer Injury Lawyers In Harrisburg, Pennsylvania can answer any questions you may have about whether you have about children qualifying for social security, and applying for and qualifying for social security disability.  Contact Melissa if you have any questions or need a social security disability lawyer.
