Also, if you make an appointment to go to an office, you can use your driver’s license as one of your supporting documents, but if you’re mailing your documents, you won’t want to send your original driver’s license.
Get a certified copy of your driver’s license from your state department of motor vehicles, send your passport (also a risky idea) or call your nearest Social Security office and ask what identity document they will accept instead.
By this time the SSA should have all of the paperwork necessary to process your disability claim.
If there is any paperwork missing, your local Social Security Office will be able to advise you of this fact during your call.
If this is the case, make sure that you attend the exam and call the Social Security Office again approximately two weeks after the exam has been completed to get another status update.
