Some people tell me that if I have exaggerated or made a false statement it can be held against me. Is that true?

A-We call this a credibility issue. Judges genuinely despise people that exaggerate their medical symptoms or make false statements when testifying about their case in court. Your best chance to winning your case is when you tell the truth and the entire truth at all times.

When you first applied for SSDIB you completed a series of documents and forms. You stated in those forms whether you have any limitations due to your disability. I will guarantee you that every Social Security judge reads those initial forms that you completed two years ago when you first applied for benefits and they will examine you and if you state that your limitations are different than what you stated on those forms that will be an issue. You will be asked why your condition is different today. You certainly will lose credibility with that judge. Make sure you keep a copy of that initial form you first submitted when you applied for SSDIB. Your earlier comments and statements may come back and haunt you!
