Social Security Disability: Be precise!

Social Security bases it’s decision on concrete figures. When you complete forms for Social Security, make sure that you use numbers, not words, to describe your limitations. If you use words like “a lot,” “often,” “very little,” “not far,” “few,” or others, Social Security has to ignore that sentence. If you can only walk for 10 minutes, don’t say “I can’t walk far,” say “I can’t walk more than 10 minutes.” Providing Social Security with numbers gives them something to base their decision on.
