The Burden To Prove Disability Is On You
Many people who apply for disability benefits think that they will be awarded benefits if they simply explain their disabling impairment to a Judge. But the SSA system doesn’t work like that. The law clearly states that the person applying for disability benefits has the burden to prove they are disabled and they must do so with objective medical evidence from a physician. But how can you get medical evidence if you don’t have insurance to go to the doctor?
