What is a disability form

A disability form is used by someone who is disabled to apply for disability benefits as part of a country or organisation’s social security disability benefits programme. A person is either disabled since birth or becomes disabled after an accident or illness. If he has the necessary medical records, then he can apply for disability benefits and earn a stipend for his condition. There can be many types of disability forms like disability insurance form, social security disability form, government disability form, child disability form, disability assessment form, disability grant form, disability report form, disability appeal form and so on. Based on one’s requirements, any of these forms can be used.

A disability form usually has the following points which must be answered by someone who is applying for disability benefits:

  • Names and contact details: The applicant must give his name, address, age, contact number and social security number in the beginning of the form.
  • Date and place of accident: If the applicant was disabled because of any accident, he must describe when and where the accident took place.
  • Illness and diagnosis of illness: Some people may be disabled due to some illness. In that case he must describe what illness he has and who diagnosed him and with what results.
  • Occupation: An applicant might have been working at the time of the accident. He must describe his work and if he is capable of working in a similar work environment. If not, he must write what kind of limitations he has because of his disability and where he will be comfortable working.
  • Grants: If the applicant is applying for a grant, he will be asked how he plans to utilise the disability grants – whether he plans to go for higher studies, start a business or use it for daily sustenance.
