Function Report - Adult


jmack

Question

Today I received two forms from SSA. A function report and a work history report. Can anyone tell me why they ask for these to be completed if I completed it when I first applied for ssd? What stage in the determination process are they in? Please help, I have only 10 days to complete.

This is my take on this:

Has your condition changed since you first filed for disability?

For instance, depression may be greater now, you may need more meds.

More pain meds.

You get it. what can't you do for yourself.

Does it depress you that you are no longer capable of gainful employment.

Do you spend time dwelling on this and that you may watch the neighbors leaving for work, but due to your illness, you are unable to and do the things that you once could.

Does your family do things for you, that you cannot do for yourself and what would this be.

My thoughts,

Josephine

I just applied for ssd about 10 days ago. That's kinda fast response from SSA don't you think? They want to know exactly what I do from the time I get out of bed in the morning until I go to bed at night. They also say if I need help completing the form to contact them. I hate to seem paranoid but I always think government agencies are first trying to deny you your benefits. Thanks to the VA its hard to trust any of them. So I take precautions so that I want hurt my family and my chances.

Thanks Josephine

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
