If you are applying or have applied for Social Security disability, you are already familiar with the Social Security disability claim process. What you may not know is how your application for benefits is reviewed.

 

Initially, you will be assessed to determine if you meet the Social Security Administration’s definition of disabled and have worked long enough to qualify for benefits. Your Social Security disability claim will then be sent to the Disability Determination Services office in North Carolina.

 

The North Carolina state agency is comprised of physicians and disability specialists who will contact your treating medical team about your medical condition. Your doctors may be asked to explain the following: 

 

  • your current medical condition
  • when and how your medical condition began
  • what the defining limits are of your medical condition
  • how does your medical condition restrict your activities
  • your medical tests and their respective results
  • the types of treatment you are receiving and have received

 

Your state agency may also want you to have a special examination, which Social Security will pay for.
