How to Fill Out Form SSA-3368-BK in San Jose

Disability Report -Adult

When you’re applying for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, there’s one thing you can’t avoid: filling out a lot of forms.

One of the first forms you’ll encounter — and one of the most fundamental parts of your application — is the form where you report your disability.

It’s called Form SSA-3368 — or the “Adult Disability Report.”

Here’s where you’ll explain the health problems that make it impossible for you to work.

Both physical and mental health conditions can qualify you for Social Security Disability benefits.

What Information Do I Need for Form SSA-3368?

You’ll need the following details for this form:

  • The date your medical condition began
  • Your symptoms
  • Your medical history
  • Details of the medical treatment you’ve undergone
  • Names of the doctors you’ve seen
  • A list of the medical facilities where you’ve gone
  • An explanation of how your health condition keeps you from working
  • An explanation of why you can’t perform past jobs
  • An explanation of why you can’t perform other kinds of jobs

Where Do I Send Form SSA-3368?

You can file Form SSA-3368 online with the Social Security Administration (SSA). You file it when you first apply for Social Security Disability or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.

You also can fill out this report in person during your interview with an SSA claims representative if you’re not applying online.

It can be better to apply in person if you think you’re going to have questions understanding the form.

What Happens After I File Form SSA-3368?

Along with Form SSA-3369, this report starts your Social Security Disability claim.

In California, an SSA claims representative forwards this form to a state Disability Determination Services (DDS) office.

DDS is a state division that makes an initial decision on your case.

After DDS gives its opinion, an SSA disability claims examiner evaluates your application.

It’s important to provide complete and accurate information on this form. Missing or wrong information can cause your benefits to get delayed or denied.

That’s why you should double-check details such as names and addresses of doctors you’ve seen.

Providing thorough information also increases the chance that the claims examiner will understand your situation.
