Getting a disability claim updated with new information
How do I find my disability claim to update it?
You cannot update you disability claim on your own. You must contact your local Social Security office to provide them with the information you wished to be updated. You can also call the toll free Social Security number 1-800-772-1213 for some updates.
Non-medical information, particularly concerning income and/or assets should be reported to the Social Security office, specifically the claims representative, or CR, that took your claim.
However, if you want to update something medical (diagnoses, places and dates of treatment, etc), you should first try to contact the disability examiner working on your disability claim. The examiner is the individual who evaluates your medical evidence of record as well as your vocational work history to determine if you can be approved on the basis of a listing, approved through a medical vocational allowance, or if the claim must be denied.
After your claim evaluation has begun, in fact, most of the information you would need to pass on to the Social Security Administration would need to go the examiner assigned to your claim. If you are unable to reach them, contact your local Social Security office and they will get the information to them.
