When you file an application for Social Security Disability Insurance or Supplemental Security Income you must provide the SSA with a significant amount of information. This information includes details such as your work history, information about your disabling condition and personal details such as your name, birth date and Social Security number. There are a number of forms that are required in order to fill out a Social Security Disability claim. SSA Form 3368, the Adult Disability Report, is the most comprehensive and, some argue, the most important of the forms that you will fill out when applying for disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.
Form 3368 is an 11-section form that you must complete prior to your Social Security Disability interview. You can apply for disability online or on paper. It is important to note that this form must be filled out in its entirety with very accurate and detailed answers if you hope to be approved for Social Security Disability benefits.
Some disability applicants find that Form 3368 is overwhelming when applying for SSD benefits. In such cases it is often a good idea to retain the services of a Social Security Disability attorney. By working together with an attorney, you can be sure that Form 3368 is filled out properly and in such a way that your disability claim is presented in the best light possible to the Social Security Administration. The SSA will be looking for certain information and answers on this form. A Social Security Disability attorney can help you fill out the form in a way that will strengthen your claim for SSD benefits.
