How the SSA Blue Book Can Help

The Social Security Administration (SSA) will not be able to accept your claim if there is no objective evidence that you have a disability. Therefore, the SSA will require you to provide proof of your medical condition to continue with the process of obtaining benefits.

Most applicants must show that they have a severe impairment that limits their abilities and prevents them from working. To prove this, many applicants are required to submit x-rays, MRIs (magnetic resonance imaging), chemical analysis, exercise tests, and psychological tests together with their application forms.
