Do I need to see a doctor before I apply for benefits?

Not necessarily. If you are unable to see a doctor for your disabling illness, injury, or condition, you can still apply for benefits. The application process is faster when you can provide documentation for your ailment, but some people may not be able to afford a doctor's visit. If the Social Security Administration requires you to visit a doctor before they authorize benefits, they will pay for the exam. 

The attorneys of the Coye Law Disability Center want to guide you through the disability process. If your claim has been denied, you need someone to fight for you and work within the Social Security Administration's complex appeals process. Call us today for a free consultation.
