I'm seeking real-life experiences in applying for Social Security Disability.
Yesterday I completed my on-line application for Social Security Disability. I haven't been able to work since February and have been receiving first short-term and now long-term disability payments from my prior employer (I no longer have a job to go back to even if I were able to work). My long-term disability is approved in 3 month chunks, but since there has been no improvement in my condition, I don't have any reason to believe it wouldn't continue to be approved although it's stressful to me when those reapprovals come due.

I have a SSA Consultative Exam (mental) for disability determination next week. Since I don't have a doctor of my own, or health insurance, or an income the NJ DOL is providing one for me to see. There is a form for me to fill out that authorizes the release my SSA Consultative Exam Report. I don't have a doctor of my own, nor a way to get a doctor myself. How can I get a copy for myself then?
