Not sure which records you need? A disability attorney in Dunn will work with you to make sure you have everything you need when you apply for benefits to avoid delays or denials related to insufficient information. A lot of Social Security disability claims are initially rejected. Getting everything in order may help to avoid this.
One of the requirements to qualify for disability benefits is having enough work credits. To see if you do, Social Security Administration (SSA) will compare its records, which show your lifelong earnings, to the information on your W-2 form. Your name and Social Security number must be the same on its end as it is on the W-2.
If for some reason your Social Security number isn’t correct, or the information on your W-2 form isn’t right, it is up to you to get it fixed. It is vital that your records are accurate when applying for benefits. If you have errors with your Social Security card, contact SSA. If your W-2 form isn’t correct, you will need to talk with your employer.
If you have questions concerning work credits and the impact they have on eligibility, you may wish to discuss your case with an attorney. A lawyer is often helpful keeping things streamlined and ensuring you collect the appropriate information.
