I'm filling out the Activities of Daily Living questionnaire. What do I write?

Social Security sends out the Activities of Daily Living questionnaire to better assess how your physical and mental impairments impact your daily life. This questionnaire asks about your abilities and limitations in performing tasks such as caring for yourself and your household. While your medical records allow Social Security to evaluate your medical diagnoses, this questionnaire allows Social Security to assess how the diagnoses impact your life on a day-to-day basis.

The good news is that you are the person in the best position to answer these questions about what you do on a typical day. Be honest. Don't exaggerate or understate your limitations and abilities. This questionnaire, together with your medical records, can be important to your Social Security claim.
