Best thing you can do for the phone interview is make sure that you have good information in your hand ready to pass along to SSA. I would suggest making a list of ALL of your impairing conditions, all of the medical providers you have seen for those conditions (even better if you can get addresses/telephone numbers for the providers maybe off the internet), the dates as best you can recall when you saw each medical provider, the places you may have worked (again even better if you have addresses), a list of all of your current medication and name of the prescribing physician(s) and the names/dates for any places that might have relevant educational records.
