What is the Daily Activities Questionnaire?
The Daily Activities Questionnaire is an important component of the Social
Security disability application. The Social Security Administration (SSA)
reviews the Daily Activities Questionnaire to determine whether or not
to approve or deny your benefits claim. This form demonstrates how profoundly
your disability has impacted your life and your ability to partake in
regular daily activities.
The Daily Activities Questionnaire examines your ability to engage in everyday
activities such as:
- Getting dressed
- Bathing / showering
- Cleaning your home
- Taking care of your yard / landscaping needs
- Cooking meals
- Driving a vehicle
- Running errands
- Shopping for groceries / household necessities
- Doing laundry
How do I complete the Daily Activities Questionnaire?
This aspect of your application is important because it gets down to the
basics of how your condition inhibits your daily activities. It is important
to be honest in this form. You must clearly express the extent of your
injuries, and describe in clear and accurate terms how your condition
has negatively impacted your daily functionality. Don't forget to
include details about the side effects of your condition, including the
side effects of any medications you may be taking to treat it.
