Understanding the Adult Disability Report (SSA Form 3368)

The largest part of your Social Security disability benefits application is the adult disability report, SSA form 3368. This form deals with specific information about your disability and work history to help the Social Security Administration (SSA) determine your eligibility for disability benefits.

Filling Out the Adult Disability Report

The adult disability report is an 11-section form that can be completed online or on paper. When applying for Social Security disability benefits you may fill these forms out on your own, or have assistance from another trusted source such as a family member, caretaker, or a Florida Social Security disability representative.

It is extremely helpful to have your medical and occupational history handy when filling out the adult disability report, as most of the sections will focus on these two topics. It is best to choose someone who is familiar with your disability history, or has good access to the records to help them answer the majority of the report.

Filling out the adult disability report is a long process and only one step in filing for Social Security disability benefits. Having a Florida Social Security disability representative help you with your application process can help relieve some of the stress of the paperwork and follow-up.

Questions on the Adult Disability Report

The focus of the adult disability report is that you provide enough documentation and evidence of both your work history and disability. The form’s 11 sections gather basic information, work history, education history, medical history and medical analysis. You will need to have copies of your medical records handy, and tax forms or pay stubs are also useful when filling out the adult disability form.

Sections 1-3 are general information including a basic description of medical conditions. Sections 4 through 6 deal with work and education history and information, while sections 7 through 9 deal strictly with your medical conditions, with section 8 being the longest. Section 10 handles information on additional support services, and section 11 is for additional space for more remarks on your Social Security disability application.

Section 8 is for a wide range of medical information and asks for specific dates and descriptions of treatments related to your disability. Having access to your medical records while completing the adult disability report is crucial to having a substantially supported and well-organized application. This can help make your Social Security disability benefits application go much more smoothly and help in the approval process.
