You must attach proof of one of the following disabilities. (Dr.’s letter which specifies the nature of your disability on Dr.’s letterhead & signed by a doctor or a hospital diagnosis,; the diagnosis must be written out not just a number). Please check the diagnosis which applies to you and attach the documentation.
