There are a number of forms that are involved in applying
There are a number of forms that are involved in applying for Social Security Disability benefits as well as SSI disability benefits. And one of those forms is called the 3368, also known as the disability report form.
What is the disability report? This is actually completed when you file for disability benefits with the social security administration. The form is designed to allow you to provide the basic facts regarding your case. Those facts regard the nature of your physical or mental condition (you'll be asked to list your impairments), when you believe you became disabled, and your medical treatment sources.
The 3368 can be thought of, really, as the point where your fight for disability benefits begins and here's why. After you complete your disability application, it will be transferred by the claims rep who took your claim, out of the social security office where you applied, and to a disability examiner at the state disability agency in your particular state (in most states, this agency will be called DDS, or disability determination services).

The disability examiner will rely on the information provided on your 3368, or disability report form, to start developing your case and the medical sources you list will allow the examiner to start gathering your records. If you leave off important sources, or do not provide complete contact information, this may potentially cause your case to "move slower" than might otherwise be the case.
When do you fill out form 3368? You can fill this out online, or at the disability application interview with a social security claims representative. Or you can have an attorney do this for you online if you choose to have representation from the very start.
