By now, we should have access to the electronic file that SSA has prepared for your case.
The most important period in your case is from the date that we claim that you first became disabled (often called the Alleged Onset Date or AOD) until the date of the hearing. Thus, and while your medical history before the AOD is important, medical and other evidence since the AOD is more important.
We have provided you with a list of the medical and other important records that SSA has collected.
HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:
Advise us promptly whether you have seen each of the medical professionals listed AFTER the last date listed.
For example, if SSA has collected medical records from Dr. Smith for the period 01/05/2013 through 07/19/2014 advise us promptly if you have seen Dr. Smith AFTER 07/19/2014. If so, we will collect all records from Dr. Smith AFTER 07/19/2014.
Give us the name, address, phone and fax number (if available) of any medical professionals that you have seen since the date we claim that you first became disabled that are NOT on the list we provided to you. We will collect all records from these medical professionals.
Advise us whether, as we recommended, you received vocational rehabilitation services from ACCES-VR or from any other source. If so, we will collect these records.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
