Q Social Security keeps asking for the same information again and again. Do I really need to fill out this Activities of Daily Living questionnaire again?
Yes! For starters, Social Security can deny your claim for failure to cooperate. When you fill out and return the paperwork Social Security sends you, you are cooperating with the evaluation, and this is very important to your Social Security claim.
The medical evaluators at Social Security often send questionnaires asking questions about what you are able to do during a typical day. If you are denied and file an appeal, a new medical evaluator is going to act as a fresh set of eyes looking at your case. Your condition and your ability to perform daily activities might or might not have changed since you last filled out these forms, and that kind information is important for your evaluator.
