The medical, psychological or non-physician consultant has overall responsibility
for the content of the form and must sign the form to attest that it is complete and
that they are responsible for its content, including the findings of fact and any
discussion of supporting evidence.
Any additional consultants who provide input must also sign and date the form. The
disability examiner may assist in preparing the form.
If a signed prescribed form reflects that the medical or psychological consultant's
findings complete the medical portion of the determination, the consultant is not
required to sign the Disability Determination and Transmittal form (SSA-831 or SSA-832).
For a detailed explanation regarding signature requirements see DI 26510.090C.
NOTE: Non-physician medical or psychological consultants are limited to evaluating the effects
of impairments within their disciplines.
