I just received a Function Report questionnaire in the mail from Social Security. What should I do?
A: Complete the questionnaire right away!
You only have a limited time to comply (10 days from the date of the letter) with Social Security’s request so, don’t delay.
But, don’t rush through your answers either.
Whenever you are completing any of Social Security’s questionnaires or forms, you’ll want to keep the following in mind:
- Be honest.
- Don’t exaggerate, but be specific about your limitations.
- Don’t say that “you can’t do anything.”
- Most importantly, comply with the request with the time Social Security has allotted.
Remember, Social Security has closed disability claims based on a claimant’s non-compliance.
