Disability Forms



Disability forms are forms that are written in order to seek the benefits or exemptions that disabled or ‘specially-able’ persons are entitled to. They have a wide level of applicability. Disability forms can be required by government institutions like colleges, government posts, or social security agencies. They can even be mandatory for flying, travelling by train etc. Some of the common questions that are usually asked by disability forms are as follows:

  • Details of personal information, including name, age, postal address.
  • Details of medical reports, prior medical history, cause and previous and current treatment of disability.
  • Details of physical statistics like height, weight etc.
  • In case of social security reasons, the social security number, and the employment status of the disabled person assumes vital importance.
  • Detail of previous work is also required.

Disability forms must be filled out carefully. If the information provided is faulty or inaccurate in any way, legal proceedings may be commenced against the offender. These forms address every conceivable issue related to the disability, physical and health conditions of the applicant. Disability forms must be attested by government officials and health care specialists. All records of medical history including doctor’s certificate must be attached to lend credence to claims of disability. The importance of disability forms are as follows:

  • They are a repository of data about disabled persons for future reference.
  • They help judge the accuracy and verity of disability claims.

Disability forms are thus extremely important in opting for the privileges that disabled persons are entitled to and hence must be written carefully.
