SSDI Expert Only Please2nd opinionSSDI Expert (Social Security Disability Insurance) application question. Please only send to SSDI specialist.I have had 18 jobs in the last 25 years most of which have ended with unfavorable dismissals related to bipolar originating behaviors. I have tried as long as I can and now will seek thedisability. I read that employer statements don't count for much. However, Often the big companies like Medtronic, Glaxo, Steelcase write up detailed accounts of my performance issues so to withstand any legal challenges. The reason I want to include them are that my doc's and I were caught off guard with these forced resignations. We thought I was doing very well. So I suppose his notes indicate the same. Are these documents worth including in the application?
