Should I tell my doctor I am filing for disability?

Yes, tell your doctor when you apply for disability. Being truthful with any treating medical provider is important. You should tell your all your medical care providers you are applying for disability if they are familiar with your medical care. Most doctors want to see if they can help you so you’ll be able to continue working. It is best to follow your doctor’s advice and try to do everything you can to get better if that is possible.
