• What to bring – Documents related to info like one’s work history, medical records, and other supporting evidence to back a claim are needed.

• What will be asked – Applicants will be asked questions related to their disability, marital status, possible workers’ compensation filings, children or dependents, military service if applicable, where they have received medical care, and other things related to their eligibility.
